The RISE OF NAZI GERMANY
The first half of the workshop provides a detailed context for the rise of Nazi Germany by exploring post World War 1 Germany. The intricacies and impact of propaganda are investigated and the subsequent demonisation, discrimination and exclusion are discussed. In an interactive activity we explore the importance of our Democratic rights and the ill-effects of the Nuremberg Laws and Racial Science.

ANATOMY OF THE HOLOCAUST
The second half of the workshop examines the anatomy of the Holocaust from the outbreak of World War 2, life in the Ghettos, Einsatzgruppen, The “Final Solution” to Liberation. The theme of Resistance and the resilience of the human spirit in the Holocaust is explored as well as Democracy, discrimination and the world today. This leads on to investigating the importance of Upstanders and the Righteous Among the Nations which inspires, and prompts facilitated discussion on social justice, moral compass and our responsibilities today.

A SURVIVOR’s testimony
Lastly, moving testimony is given by a Holocaust Survivor or second-generation survivor.
