 Tom Haward – Centre for Holocaust Education – Being Human

Even before they begin to study the Holocaust many students have well formed (but largely inaccurate) ideas about how it happened. Commonly this translates into strongly-held beliefs about the kinds of people who killed, who ‘stood-by’, and who tried to help. While these notions help to ‘make sense’ of the Holocaust, they also oversimplify the realities of the historical events.

In this session Tom Hayward will demonstrate how to use a range of detailed case studies which allow students to ask how and why ordinary people became complicit in mass murder. In so doing, they are left with searching questions about what it is to be a citizen in the modern world.

 Ian Phillips – Edge Hill University – Historical Interpretations

This session will look at teaching methods that can be used to bring pupils into contact with different interpretations of the past.

 Annie Davis – English National Archives

This is an interactive session using primary sources from National Archives of Scotland. It will demonstrate how these documents and sources can be used in the classroom using examples from the military service exemption panels.
