Holocaust Survivor Janine Webber Live Webcast Event

Holocaust Survivor Janine Webber Live Webcast Event

On Friday January 26th, as part of the Holocaust Educational Trust live webcast event, our Y10 GCSE History and Sixth Form students were privileged to take part in a webinar, delivered by HET and a Holocaust survivor Janine Webber. Our students listened intently to Janine’s powerful and moving story, where she experienced first-hand, the persecution and systematic removal of the Jewish communities in Poland during Nazi occupation. Janine spoke for an hour and answered questions posed by some of the 40,000 viewers online and our students were inspired and moved by this unique and significant testimony. Our Y12 students commented; “Janine’s story was very overwhelming and emotional, yet incredibly informative. It was certainly helpful in furthering my knowledge on the events of the Holocaust…it was an interesting and fascinating story that is inspiring to every student that watched. Her story is something you could not believe experiencing yourself at such a young age…she told us about something we could not imagine in this day and age, yet was her childhood growing up. It offered us a new perspective; that of a child’s.”

Thank you to all of those students who took part in the event. For more information about the work that we are doing as a UCL Beacon School for Holocaust Education, visit our Twitter feed; @TCC_BeaconHolo
