Job Description

The Holocaust Educational Trust team is made up of hard working, energetic people who are passionate about our mission to educate every person from every background in the UK about the Holocaust and its contemporary relevance.

The Lessons from Auschwitz (LFA) and Lessons from Auschwitz Online Projects are courses for 16–18 year old students delivered throughout the UK. The project has taken over 42,000 students and teachers to the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. While our in person project includes a one-day visit to Poland, both our onsite and online projects aim to increase knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust and to signal what can happen if prejudice and racism become acceptable. Students then pass on the lessons they have learned to their community. The projects have been described as ‘life changing’ and can leave an unforgettable emotional and educational mark on participants.
