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

In the past year, 400 organisations partnered with the Holocaust Educational Trust through our nation-wide Outreach Programme. Survivor testimony and sharing family experiences is at the heart of what we do. Hearing from a witness allows us to put a human face to one of the darkest periods of history. Please read below to find out how your group can work with us, and then complete a request form.

Read brief biographies of some of the Holocaust survivors who share their testimony.

Information for Schools


We offer in-person and online testimony sessions with a Holocaust survivor or member of the Second Generation. Your students will be able to hear 1 hour of testimony before asking their own questions. Preparatory and debrief materials accompany every session and our online lessons are led by one of the Trust's trained facilitators. Although we do not charge a speaker fee, please note that in the case of in-person visits, we do ask the host organisation to book and pay for speaker travel.

Educator Workshops

A trained Educator from the Trust can visit your school to deliver free, interactive classroom sessions. Workshops are available for students in year 6 and above.

Our 1 hour workshops cover subjects such as pre-war Jewish life; Anti-Jewish laws in the 1930s; Ghettos and concentration camps; How should we remember the Holocaust? For younger years, we look at case studies of the Kindertransport and rescue.
