Holocaust Educational Trust – Outreach Programme 

The Holocaust Educational Trust will arrange an online testimony session for your group with a Holocaust survivor or a member of the Second Generation, and a trained facilitator. The meeting will last about 1 hour and 30 minutes, which will include 45 minutes of testimony before an interactive Q+A. If you are a school group, the Trust facilitator will also lead students in a quick reflective activity.

“The most memorable lesson of the year...”

In the past year, more than 200 organisations partnered with the Holocaust Educational Trust, utilising our Outreach programme to enhance their Holocaust educational provision.

Survivor testimony forms a key component of effective Holocaust education by putting a human face to history and enabling students to explore its lessons in depth.

The Outreach programme is free of charge.
