Through a Child's Eyes: Holocaust Literature for Young People

An exciting opportunity for educators to investigate Holocaust literature written from a child's perspective


Organised in association with Facing History and Ourselves, this workshop presents an exciting opportunity for educators to investigate Holocaust literature written from a child's perspective and to discuss its use in the classroom. Attendees will receive effective resources and guidance on how to teach this important subject. The workshop will include two sessions focusing on how literature can illuminate aspects of the Holocaust, and in addition there will be a tour of the Wiener Library’s special collection of children’s books. There will be time to reflect on the principles that underpin the use of Holocaust literature, especially that written by and for young people.

The workshop will be of particular interest to teachers of English, History, RE, Citizenship and Philosophy for Children. Advice will also be available about how the Wiener Library can be useful more generally to your work, and how Facing History and Ourselves can help your professional development.

Refreshments will be served during the afternoon. Places limited to 15 on a first come first served basis,

Please note: This workshop was originally scheduled to take place in February but had to be postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. Thanks to the generous support of Facing History an admission fee is no longer required.
