Verdon College hit the road at 6.30am this morning to visit our Shadows of Shoah exhibition, which tied in well with their History study of WWII.

The LEOTC programme focused on the Remember, Reflect, Respond, Resolve formula. The sessions involved discussing expectations of the exhibition and prior knowledge on WWII and the Holocaust, viewing the exhibition, then debriefing and analyzing transcripts from the exhibition.

Themes of choiceless choices, loss of identity, dehumanization, the role of propaganda, and the role of onlookers were discussed. Many of the students found viewing the exhibition a confronting experience as they all felt they had more questions than answers after viewing Shadows of Shoah.

The students were also impressed with examples of human kindness within the survivors stories.

What was the most memorable part of the exhibition for you?
