On Tuesday 4 October, Yr 10 History students visited the Jewish Holocaust Centre in Elsternwick. The excursion supported students’ study of the Holocaust which occurred during the 1930s and 1940s. We were extremely lucky, as our school was the first to experience the Centre’s education program in their new building, and staff were excited about our visit, reminding students that we were ‘making history’. Students had the opportunity to speak to 98-year-old survivor Abram Goldberg who was a member of the resistance in the Lodz Ghetto in Poland.
The excursion was informative and a fabulous opportunity to ask questions directly from someone who survived the conditions. Students also participated in an activity using artefacts from the museum. This can be seen in the photographs below. Thank you to teachers and staff who supported the event.
