Lessons from Auschwitz

Dyce Academy are in a fortunate position to offer two places on this course to pupils in S5/S6 for free. Based on the premise that ‘hearing is not like seeing’, this four-part course explores the universal lessons of the Holocaust and its relevance for today. The LFA Project aims to increase knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust for young people and to clearly highlight what can happen if prejudice and racism become acceptable.

The visits to the former Nazi concentration and death camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau are preceded and followed by half-day seminars in order to ensure an exceptional educational experience.

If interested please collect an application from Mr Naples-Campbell asap.
