Gathering the Voices: A Scottish response to teaching about the Holocaust

With Dr Angela Shapiro

In this presentation, Dr Angela Shapiro will outline the key features of a Scottish community based project ‘Gathering the Voices’. The key aim of Gathering the Voices is to collect, and make freely available online, the oral and videoed testimony from men and women who sought sanctuary in Scotland as a consequence of Nazi persecution. The project is using blended learning approaches to engage with the general public and, more specifically, young adults and children of school age. Its website enables teachers to link sections easily to the school curriculum.
