    Jewish Museum Trip on Holocaust Day

    Overall the trip was fascinating because it told us a lot about people’s lives and gave us lots of good facts and evidence about the treatment of Jews during the Holocaust.

     

     

    On Friday 27 January, Y9 went to the Jewish Museum. We had many different activities to do so that we could learn more about Jewish culture and how their identity has been shaped by the Holocaust.

    But first, as it was Holocaust Remembrance Day, we attended a ceremony where someone read from the Torah and we had a minute’s silence as someone lit a candle in remembrance. This was very emotional as many members of the public joined us for the minute’s silence.

    One of our activities involved finding out about Leon Greenman who lost his wife and child in the Death Camps. He dedicated the rest of his life to telling children about the Holocaust so that we make sure we never make the same mistakes again.

    The main part of our trip was to meet and hear the story of a Holocaust survivor. It was really interesting hearing her story because it is a first-hand experience of what it was like for a Jewish child living in Europe in the 1930s. I felt really privileged to hear this as soon there will not be many survivors left to tell us their stories.

    Overall the trip was fascinating because it told us a lot about people’s lives and gave us lots of good facts and evidence about the treatment of Jews during the Holocaust.
