Exhibition closed

We're open Monday – Thursday 10am – 4pm & Sundays 11am – 3.30pm

Our Secondary Plus programme is designed for students from KS3 through to A-Level. Our sessions deepen factual historical understanding of the Holocaust by drawing on our collection and on the diverse and difficult experiences of our survivors. Each session also stimulates students to use their learning to consider current events, and their role as global citizens with the ability to make a positive impact on local communities. All sessions have been created to complement the National Curriculum and history exam boards on the Holocaust. All sessions are 2 hours long and accommodate up to 40 students.

Don’t forget to ask us about our travel subsidy scheme. We might be able to refund your travel expenses!

Our Hands on History sessions are 90 minutes long and can be booked in addition to any learning session.

‘I found this exhibition very informative as it gave a lot of room for different stories and backgrounds. They also encouraged everyone to discuss and challenge different opinions which led to more information being learnt.’

Dangerous Decisions: The Road to Genocide


This session explores the daily lives of ordinary Germans living under Nazi rule.

What agency did people have to make choices, and how did those choices affect what happened to them?

Using images, objects and texts from our collection, students explore case studies to understand how people were affected by cultural, political and social change between Weimar and the Third Reich. The session explores a broad spectrum of victims and their experiences, including Jewish, Roma, LGBT, and the disabled.

Why did some people help the victims of the Holocaust? Why did some join the Nazis?

In this session students consider the roles of bystanders, collaborators and perpetrators, their motivations, as well period-specific nuances regarding questions of responsibility and accountability.

Indoctrinating a Nation: Nazi Propaganda


Nazi propaganda manifested itself in a variety of ways, including media, architecture and education.

But what was the role of propaganda in turning friends against friends, neighbours against neighbours, ultimately leading them to persecution and murder?

We will consider the role of bias, the manipulation of media and other cultural objects, and their ability to influence audiences. Students are then asked to use their critical skills to evaluate contemporary sources of information, and discuss the importance of safeguarding against misinformation.

A Wounded Landscape: Every Picture Tells A Story


This session offers a unique opportunity to engage with historical images and contemporary photographs and to think critically about their content.

We will discuss why images are taken, who they are for, their purposes, if and how they have been manipulated, and whether they can be trusted as sources of factual information and knowledge.

By looking at Marc Wilson’s documentary project, ‘A Wounded Landscape: Bearing Witness To The Holocaust’, we explore contemporary photography can help to document the legacies of the Holocaust.
