“Without any doubt, the study trip to Jerusalem in July 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.”

“This visit has given me an enormous amount of insight, perspective and knowledge.”

“Having a deeper knowledge will give me more confidence in teaching about the Holocaust.”

“By gaining knowledge of the topic, I feel more confident. The workshops helped me to understand how to use resources effectively.”

“Working with primary sources, testimonies, diaries, photos and art, is the best way to teach about the Holocaust.”

“The quality of the academic lectures was exceptional… There was a good mix of history, art, video, physical movement and personal testimonies.”

“Very valuable. Lots of good, practical teaching strategies and links to extra reading and resources.”

“The balance of the program was top-class. The move from formal lecture, to workshop, to visits, with breaks in between, kept the days interesting.”
