Holocaust Educational Trust Update – Outreach Programme 

As on all public health matters, the Holocaust Educational Trust is following government and NHS guidance in regard to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We have temporarily suspended all in person activity through the Trust and are instead using online platforms to enable survivors to share their testimony through the Outreach Programme.

We are now taking expressions of interest for online live survivor testimony for the next academic year, 2020-2021. If you would like to arrange for a survivor to speak to your group via a platform such as Zoom, Google Meets or Teams please be in touch with the Outreach Team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Please be aware that online sessions will take place at the following times each week:
Tuesday 11am; Wednesday 2pm; Friday 10.30am.
Once an expression of interest has been received the Outreach Team will work with you to secure a slot. If these set times do not work for your organisation, please let us know.

If you have already submitted a request form for the next academic year we will be in touch in the coming weeks to offer you this alternative opportunity. Places will be limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. As always we endeavour to meet all requests but cannot guarantee to do so.

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

In the past year, more than 600 schools partnered with the Holocaust Educational Trust, utilising our Outreach programme to enhance their Holocaust educational provision.

Through our Outreach programme, the Trust arranges for Holocaust survivors to visit schools to deliver their personal testimony and for trained Holocaust educators to lead workshop sessions.

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.
