Auschwitz-Birkenau Trip

 

 

Two of our A Level students from Kinver High School visited the former Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau last week.

 

The Holocaust Educational Trust sent 200 students from the West Midlands on their ‘Lessons from Auschwitz’ project, the objective being ‘hearing is not like seeing’.

 

Ellie Smith and Imogen Beddow, both in Year 12, gained a lot from their experience at Auschwitz.

 

They said: "It was an eye opening and emotional experience which made us think and really consider the conditions that the prisoners of Auschwitz were put through. We both said that the visit really brought the events into real life, as we visited the gas chambers and bunkers in which the prisoners were put. It was also beneficial to our history studies, as we will soon be learning about Nazi Germany once we have finished the Weimar Republic course section. Overall, it was a fascinating experience which really made us appreciate the horrendous conditions and events that happened at Auschwitz-Birkenau."

 

History teacher, Mr Fox, said: "I'm delighted that both students seized the opportunity to take part in such a life-changing experience. For any historian, studying the horrors that occurred during the persecution of European Jewry at the hands of the Nazi Party in the 1930s and 1940s is essential. It was very important that Imogen and Ellie could see these at first-hand at Auschwitz, and I now hope they can use the visit to teach others about the Holocaust here at Kinver High. An experience such as this is made even more significant considering the rise in social and religious tensions in modern Britain and Europe, and in trying to ensure that we do not repeat the mistakes of the past."
