The Power of Courage


A group of Year 9s and Year 8s learnt about the Holocaust and the experiences that some individuals faced living at this time. Abby Dickson tells us about visiting the Holocaust museum as part of the Year 8 Human Rights Convention. 

On Tuesday of my Human Rights Convention week, a group of Year 8 students went to the Holocaust museum. When we arrived outside, there were sculptures of hands and barbed wire. There was also an eternal flame. All of this was very intriguing. I have read lots of books on the Holocaust such as the Once, Then, Now series, The Book Thief, Elli and many more.
