Year 9 History students at The BH Academy visited the Imperial War Museum in London to support their learning of Twentieth Century World History and the Holocaust.
Students participated in an extremely interesting and thought provoking study session on the Holocaust, which enabled them to focus on personal testimonies of the victims. This prepared them for the Holocaust exhibition which charted the different stages of the persecution, before finishing with a debrief from the Holocaust Educator to help them make sense of the difficult things they had seen.
The rest of the visit was spent exploring the fascinating exhibits at the museum. Students loved looking at the tanks and planes!
The students were all excellent ambassadors for the academy and the Holocaust Educator made a point of highly praising them for their very polite and respectful attitudes. The students will now act as ‘experts’ teaching and feeding back their findings to their peers in Holocaust focused History lessons.
