“This three day summer course was a fantastic introduction to the complexities of the Holocaust. The breadth and depth of topics covered was outstanding. It was an extremely well organised programme, the calibre of the lectures was of a very high standard and the variety of topics was excellent.”

“Good mixture between the very interesting academic-style lectures and the workshops.  The best compliment I can pay this course is that I signed up to the full certificate course based on how impressed I was with the facilitators and lecturers and the overall layout of this course.”

“An excellently balanced programme- obviously significant planning went into delivering a balanced delivery of facts with methodological tools.”


“Excellent ideas about how to introduce the complex subject of the Holocaust into the classroom.  Superb engaging lectures, very informative.”
