“Without any doubt, the study trip to Jerusalem in August was a life-changing experience and one that I will never forget.  I will take what I learned here and use it in my own life and in my classroom.”

“Yad Vashem was a truly inspiring place, the standard of the lecturers was outstanding. The topics were wide ranging and were examined in both lectures and workshops in a highly effective manner. While some parts of the trip were emotionally highly charged, it was all handled with great sensitivity.”
