HTS students at Holocaust survivor talk

A group of Year 9 History students had a thought-provoking visit to Chichester Cathedral on the 3rd February, where a Holocaust survivor told a powerful story of his experiences.

By sharing his experiences he hopes to ensure that the sacrifice of those lost is not forgotten. When asked by our students “How did people in Britain react to his arrival?” Steven Frank explained that he got on with students in his class, who called him ‘Dutchie’ and ‘nipper’ due to his size, but that people were unaware of what had happened to him and his people.

Organisers  remarked how lovely our students were; they asked the most thoughtful questions and applied analytical thinking to their human rights workshop. Mrs McNulty and Miss Crozier were justifiably proud of them!
