Our first trip of the year will be to the Holocaust Centre on 28th September 2017.
The children will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the atrocities that took place during WWII through the interactive exhibits. Afterward, they will be given a talk by a survivor of the Holocaust who will bravely share their experiences of life in Germany during the war.
