Through the Lessons from Auschwitz Project sixth form students take part in two afternoon seminars in London and a one day visit to the former Nazi extermination camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
This Government funded Project is based on the premise that ‘hearing is not like seeing’. The aim is to increase the student’s knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust and highlight what can happen if prejudice and racism become acceptable.
Two students from Long Road will be chosen to represent the College and the places are open to both Year 1 and Year 2 students regardless of the subjects that are being studied.
Everyone is welcome to apply. There is no cost to the students taking part.
They will however be responsible for travel to and from the London seminars and to and from Stanstead Airport on the day of the visit to Poland.
You must commit to participating in all elements of the Project:
- Orientation Seminar (London) Sunday 3rd March 2019 1-5pm
- Visit to Poland Thursday 7th March 2019
- Follow-up Seminar (London) Tuesday 12th March 2019 3-6.30
- Next Steps Project – Participants design and implement projects in their schools and communities aimed at sharing their experiences and lessons learnt.
If you would like to apply please pick up an application form from the LRC. Applications close 1st February.
