HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMMES

We host school groups throughout the year to our Centre. Our programmes apply the history of the Holocaust to help young people think critically about contemporary society. We welcome groups of any grade, however, as the Holocaust forms part of the National Curriculum in grades nine and eleven we have specialized programmes for these learners. We are also able to create programmes tailored to specific learner issues i.e. bullying.

Our programmes are designed to teach learners to think critically, to consider the choices they make and to conscientize them to the dangers of indifference, apathy, prejudice and racism. We seek to inspire learners to promote tolerance, human rights and the value of life.

“I loved the idea of restoring Anne’s room just as it was in the Secret Annex. It is very important that pupils and the coming generations learn about the Holocaust and so it will never happen again.”
