Professor Stuart Foster with Dame Helen Hyde: 'Teaching and Learning about the Holocaust in School:

The third event in The Wiener Library's Lecture Series The New Jewish Question? The Holocaust, Israel, Antisemitism.


This event is the third event in The Wiener Library's Lecture Series The New Jewish Question? The Holocaust, Israel, Antisemitism.

Stuart Foster's presentation will draw on the results of two landmark research studies to explore key contemporary issues and challenges associated with teaching the Holocaust in English secondary schools. The first study (2009) offers fascinating insights into the perspectives and practice of more than 2,000 teachers. The second study (due to be published in June 2015) explores students’ knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust. It is the world’s largest study of its kind and involves more than 9,000 secondary school students. Together these two studies provide a compelling portrait of what is being taught and learned in our schools and raises important questions about the significance and meaning of the Holocaust in contemporary society. The presentation will be chaired by Dame Helen Hyde.

Stuart Foster has specialist knowledge and expertise in history education and is also Executive Director of the UCL Institute of Education's Centre for Holocaust Education. Stuart has worked at the IOE since 2001 and has taught across a broad range of courses and programmes. From 2008 to 2011 he served as Head of the Academic Department of Arts and Humanities.

Dame Helen Hyde was appointed as a member of the Prime Minister's Holocaust Commission and Chair of its Expert Group for Education in 2014. Dame Helen has been a DfE Quality Assurance Advisor, visiting a variety of schools in various counties, an External Advisor to School Governors and an Executive Mentor to a number of Headteachers. Dame Helen sits on various committees on a local and governmental level.
