Holocaust Memorial Day

19th January 2018

Witham MP Priti Patel has written to local schools with sixth forms to encourage them to take up an opportunity to send a pair of students to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp through the Lessons from Auschwitz project organised by the Holocaust Education Trust. The project is funded by the Trust and the Government and gives participants an opportunity to visit the site in Poland, attend seminars and hear from a Holocaust survivor. After completing the course, participants become Holocaust Education Trust Ambassadors. Priti said:

“The Lessons from Auschwitz project gives students a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn about one of the darkest periods of human history. The course is an opportunity to widen knowledge and understanding of the events of the Holocaust and subsequent crimes against humanity that have shocked the world. Students who take part can become Holocaust Education Trust Ambassadors able to raise awareness of the Holocaust and be equipped to challenge racism and prejudice.”
