Holocaust Memorial Day Activities

Explore the moral, spiritual and personal dimensions of the Holocaust, through the Jewish Museum's tailor-made educational programmes this January as part of your Holocaust Memorial Day activities.

Our sensitive and thought-provoking Holocaust education sessions focus on a range of historical material and provide the rare opportunity to meet Holocaust survivors and hear their testimonies. Our Holocaust education programmes also explore links with racism today, citizenship and the experiences of refugees fleeing conflict and oppression. Object handling is a key feature of the museum’s programmes. Students explore artefacts, documents and photographs, both as sources of evidence and as a starting point for enquiries to unravel personal stories.

We have a selection of special workshops suitable for Key Stages 2 – 4, including The Last Goodbye, Faith and the Holocaust and Every Object Tells a Story. We can also tailor sessions to fit your needs. Click below to read full details of all our Holocaust Education workshops.
