Through personal narrative, students are able to comprehend the enormity of the Holocaust. We focus on engaging students to think creatively and critically in a post truth world. Students examine the unfolding of the Holocaust, its perpetrators, victims and bystanders. This enables students to make meaningful connections to ongoing injustice, racism and mass atrocities in today’s world.

By prior discussion with our Director of Education, Lisa Phillips, teachers can request focus on specialised learning topics such as The Power of Propaganda or specific texts such as Night or Maus.

We focus on engaging students to think creatively and critically in a post-truth world.
