A GROUP which teaches schoolchildren about the horrors that happened in Nazi concentration camps is inviting schools to participate in their spring programme.

The Holocaust Educational Trust, Lessons from Auschwitz project is a four part course for post-16 students and teachers which includes a one-day visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Trust will facilitate an unprecedented 11 Projects between February and June including two courses dedicated solely to teachers.

Karen Pollock, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust (HET) said: "Last year alone, close to 3000 pupils and teachers from across the county benefited from this important project.

"We call upon all teachers to ensure their pupils do not miss out on this opportunity by registering their schools to take part."

The visits to Poland, combined with orientation and follow-up seminars, leave an unforgettable emotional and educational mark on participants. The Project aims to increase knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust based on the premise that 'hearing is not like seeing' and to signal what can happen if prejudice and racism become acceptable.

Teachers interested in registering their school to take part in one of these projects should email info@lfaproject.org.uk including the name and location of their school or college.
