Holocaust in The Netherlands Educational Visit

28th Sep 2018

 

Hollandsche Schouwburg

This educational visit to Netherlands is always a valuable and thought provoking journey. The visit has been summed up in the quotes of students who attended the trip - see below.  Ms F Aldcroft  

Learning more about the Holocaust has definitely opened my eyes and given me a chance to develop an informed opinion.
I think it will make me more conscious of how I treat other peoples’ personal beliefs and I think it will make me appreciate what I have more.
Nobody can truly understand how awful the Holocaust was but seeing these aspects gave me a better understanding that made me truly think about human nature, prejudice and its relationship to God. It will stick with me for life.
Humanity can be absolutely awful and disgusting but also can find beauty in even the worst of times, for example the stories of people being kind in concentration camps.
I think that no-one who has not experienced these atrocities first hand could ever fully comprehend what it was like, but it made me, I think, look at the victims more as individuals. This will make me appreciate what I have more.
I need to be more grateful and complain a lot less!
This visit will have a tremendous impact on my life. I can’t view it in the same light – like they say, the sky will never be the same again.
I think I will show more gratitude for all the privileges in my life. But I will also feel more compelled to speak out against injustice.
This trip has allowed me to experience the whole atmosphere rather than just learning about it in lessons and has helped me to understand it a lot better. This visit will also help me to be aware of the discrimination in society and to be grateful for all that I have.
I will appreciate all I have more and the freedom to be who I am.
It will forever change my attitude to life. I have learnt to be grateful and appreciative towards what I have and I have learnt more about the importance of learning from our mistakes in history.
Thank you for this experience.
I will be more appreciative of other people. I learnt that others sacrificed themselves trying to save others, so I will be more helpful to others.
I’ve learnt to always look at the bigger picture because the people in the Holocaust suffered so much that it’s hard for privileged people like us to imagine and whatever bad things happen in our lives is nothing compared to the atrocities that some people had to go through.
I think it would make me more emotionally aware and it has really made me have a connection with the Holocaust, as before it was a past event and it happened, but it seems so much more real now and I hope to share my new found knowledge with others and perhaps discuss it in a mature way.
This visit has helped me understand the inequality, discrimination and injustice many people can face in life and how others can prevent such wrongdoings from happening.
It will have a strong impact on my life and I will never forget.
