West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper is supporting the Holocaust Educational Trust’s ‘Lessons from Auschwitz Project’ by encouraging West Lancashire schools to promote the opportunity to its students.
The Project is a carefully designed educational programme for students to attend in order to learn about pre-war experiences, life in the holocaust first-hand from a holocaust survivor, and the opportunity to visit Auschwitz.
The Lessons from Auschwitz Project will start on Monday 29th October with a seminar at which they will meet a holocaust survivor and witness his experiences. This will be followed by a visit to the Auschwitz concentration camp on Wednesday 7th November. There will then be a follow-up seminar on Sunday 11th November which will allow the students to express their views and reflect on their experience.
West Lancashire MP Rosie said:
“I actively recommend any West Lancashire students to consider this unique opportunity to visit an eye-opening testament to our history.
“Previously I have visited Auschwitz-Birkenau with school pupils from West Lancashire as part of an educational visit, which has left a deep and lasting impression on me.”
