Max and Rosie both won a trip to Auschwitz on the government-funded Lessons from Auschwitz Project organized by the HET, an organization of British Jews.
New ways to teach the “Holocaust” are being explored by the British Holocaust Education Trust (HET), among other groups. The idea is to touch the student’s emotions with personal visits to the camps, selected photographs especially of young people living normal lives before they were sent to a camp, and the tried and true survivor testimony. It’s all about transferring the desired emotional feelings since the battle for rational explanation of how the “Holocaust” happened is lost.
