We are delighted to be opening applications for Lessons from Auschwitz Online. This project is available to all state schools and colleges in Wales with a post-16 provision.

Participating students will have access to the new Lessons from Auschwitz Online learning platform to complete self-guided learning modules and use cutting edge virtual reality technology to view key sites at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Memorial and Museum. Participants will also hear from a Holocaust survivor who will share their testimony and answer questions. The course will be led by specialist educators who will guide students' learning throughout the project and students will be expected to attend three online Live Sessions.

About the Project

Students will be expected to complete a series of self-guided learning modules through which they will learn about pre-war Jewish life, explore the history of Auschwitz-Birkenau and reflect on the contemporary relevance of the Holocaust.

Please ensure your students are able to complete the pre-course module by Wednesday 2nd March 2022.

After completing the online programme, students will then work on their Next Steps, helping to disseminate the lessons they've learned from the course.
