Panel Discussion: Old Enough to Know the Truth?

A discussion of how and when children should be taught about the Holocaust

Learning about the Holocaust is part of the National Curriculum for all secondary school students in Britain, but a growing number of primary schools participate in Holocaust Memorial Day. Since more information about the past than ever before is freely available to children via the internet, the likelihood of young children asking parents or teachers about the Holocaust is higher than ever before. To help respond to this shifting educational landscape, The Wiener Library is delighted to announce a panel discussion that will bring together three different points of view on the best ways of introducing the subject to young people. The event will be chaired by former children’s laureate Michael Rosen. The speakers include Sue Berelowitz, the Deputy Children’s Commissioner for England, Dan Stone, Professor of History at Royal Holloway, University of London, and Emma O’Brien of the Holocaust Education Development Programme at the Institute of Education.
