Yr 6 Learn about the Holocaust


On Wednesday 25th January, Ash and Birch had the privilege of hearing the family story of Liz Berg – a Plymouth resident, whose father-in-law survived the Jewish holocaust of World War 2.

They were able to see photographs and documents, which were her father-in-law’s only belongings, as he fled Poland to England before other members of his family were rounded up and killed. Liz communicated the mistreatment of the Jewish people in a manner which enabled the children to begin to understand the gravity and severity of what happened to them.

Understandably shocked and saddened, we spent time reflecting on the origins of such events and Liz encouraged us all to stand up to hatred.
