Holocaust Memorial Museum UK

When searching for Holocaust related placesIMG_4710.JPG to take students in the UK there are minimal options. Other than the collection of memorabilia in London’s Imperial War Museum the largest, dedicated centre just to
the Holocaust can be found in Newark, Nottinghamshire.

The Holocaust Memorial and Museum is named Beth Shalom: The House of Peace. The team at the Centre organise a day package of activities suiting all ages for minimal cost.

For my sIMG_0986.JPGtudents this has included the opportunity to listen to a Holocaust Survivor’s account and to learn about the history of the Holocaust through pictures and restored artefacts. There are also the beautiful gardens and memorial plaques.


To enable my students to add their own reflections and flare to their experiences I created a’Capture the Day’ competition. Using their mobile phones students take pictures of the Memorial for the chance to win a prize (bought from the Holocaust gift shop). This post features a selection of the best.
