On Monday 12th December, year 10 Elective History visited the Sydney Jewish Museum for an excursion as a part of their study of the Holocaust. The students met a holocaust survivor, Olga, aged 92, who shared her experiences at the concentration camp at Auschwitz. It was an emotional experience as she told us how Jewish people were persecuted in Europe and how she lost her family. She wanted to teach us that hate is a very strong word and we need to be more accepting of each other. We also looked at a temporary exhibition of letters that were sent to loved ones during the war and an exhibition on Anne Frank. It was a very moving experience and the students found it very emotional and educational.
