Holocaust Education Resources Project

Thanks to a grant provided by The Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR), the project is also collaborating with the Jewish History Association of South Wales/Cymdeithas Hanes Iddewig De Cymru (JHASW/CHIDC) to develop bilingual, locally relevant resources on Holocaust education for use in secondary schools in Wales. These will be available through Hwb from the 2022/3 semester. By promoting bilingual educational material on Holocaust and refugee history in Wales, we will support teachers to expand knowledge of the Holocaust among young people, increase the number of people engaging with Jewish heritage, and combat antisemitism and racism.

Here you can access the English and Welsh-language resources created as part of the project. The first four lessons focus on the Kindertransport: 

“Fleeing across Europe to escape the Nazis, about 10,000 Jewish children arrived in Great Britain between December 1938 and May 1940 on ‘Kindertransport’ (Children’s Transport). Most of them had to travel without their parents or other family members. In this collection of resources about the Holocaust, we explore some of the stories of child refugees who came on Kindertransport to Wales. These resources are suitable for teaching Key Stage 3 learners.”
