On 13th February 2013, I was selected to go on a one-day visit to Auschwitz I and Auschwitz-Birkenau with the Holocaust Education Trust. The day was very moving and I shall never forget the experience.
As part of my Next Steps Project, my friend and I have compiled a book of our photos, together with testimonies from survivors. We shall present the book to our school in a special assembly, so that we can share our experience and pass on what we have learned. Hopefully, we shall encourage other students and members of our local community to think about the Holocaust and its contemporary relevance.
