During June 2016 Edna G Olds Academy in Nottingham has been working with the University of Leeds on an Arts and Humanities Research Council project to think about the lessons we can learn from the Holocaust.
We then all went to the National Holocaust Centre and Museum, where Marion, one of their educators, took us through their excellent exhibition 'The Journey', which is about Leo, a little boy who came to the UK on a Kindertransport. We were also able to talk to Susi Bechhöfer, who went on a Kindertransport when she was 3.
The Leeds team has also been working on projects in South Africa to see how the Holocaust relates to other dark moments in African history and how we can learn from them so that they never happen again. This is a film that Paul made with some people who work at the Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre.
