Holocaust Memorial Centre

This month, a group of pupils from Year 8 and Year 9 visited the Holocaust Memorial Centre in Nottingham. Our pupils were able to hear fascinating stories from some of the centre's survivors and were even able to meet a survivor themselves. The pupils found it humbling to learn from Rudi Oppenheimer's traumatic experiences and the respect and compassion shown towards Rudi was exceptional.

The pupils also participated in building a stone monument to represent the number of Jewish lives lost during the Holocaust. They will, no doubt, carry this experience with them for the rest of their lives.
