Holocaust education is an important feature of the PGHS history curriculum. Year 9 students study the causes and consequences of the Nazi persecution of Jews between 1933-1945 and the Year 11 students study the holocaust in depth as part of their GCSE studies. The theme of all year group assemblies last week was the Holocaust and all year 10 and 11 students had the privilege of attending a presentation and Q&A with Lady Milena Grenfell-Baines MBE, a holocaust survivor who was part of the Kindertransport in 1939. Lady Milena’s presentation was engaging and delivered with great dignity. The students were captivated by her personal story and how her experience fitted within the context of the Holocaust.
