About the program:
The four hour program allows teachers to select any two seminars to build a full day excursion. For Stage 5 History, we recommend Understanding the Holocaust and Resisting the Holocaust. For Stage 6 Modern History, we recommend Power and Authority and Conflict in Europe or Resisting the Holocaust.
The program includes two interactive seminars with a Museum educator, first-hand testimony from a Holocaust survivor, a guided tour of the Museum and a lunch break.
