Your Details


Our Programmes

We can arrange for a Holocaust survivor to visit your school and share their testimony. Survivors prefer to speak to large groups of students (generally a whole year group) and their testimony requires at least 90 minutes, including questions and answers. Survivors can only share their testimony once per day.

We also strongly recommend that one of our trained Holocaust educators leads an interactive workshop. Workshops can cover various aspects of the Holocaust. Options for our Educator Workshops are below.


Educator Workshops

Educator led workshop options for Key Stage 3 and above.

For each one-hour workshop, the maximum group size is 30 students. Sessions can be repeated throughout the day. If you are a primary school, one of our educators will be in contact to discuss the interactive workshops appropriate for this age group.

Important additional information

To help us place the most appropriate survivor/educator to your school please provide any relevant additional information (e.g. the ethnic and socio-economic make-up of your school, numbers of SEN pupils in each group. Have there been any racially motivated incidents in the area?)


About Your Students


Date and Time

Please give at least three possible dates and times for the educator and/or survivor visit. Sessions: (N.B. The educator sessions are flexible and can last from an hour to a full day of workshops. Survivor sessions require a minimum of 90 minutes including Q&A).

Please ensure that all dates given have been checked against the school calendar.

Further Information

Your school will be asked to cover all travel expenses and accommodation costs necessary for survivors. Educator expenses are covered by the Trust. When using our educators we would suggest liaising with colleagues in other subject areas/year groups to ensure that educators are used for a full day if possible.
