Shoah cred­its

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE -

THE HOLO­CAUST Ed­u­ca­tional Trust, in con­junc­tion with Hull Univer­sity, is to of­fer univer­sity cred­its to six­th­form­ers who com­plete the four com­po­nents of its Lessons from Auschwitz project.

Three of the com­po­nents are an ori­en­ta­tion meet­ing, a one-day Poland visit and a fol­low-up sem­i­nar. The fi­nal el­e­ment is that par­tic­i­pants share their ex­pe­ri­ences with fel­low pupils and lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

If their work is ap­proved by a univer­sity as­ses­sor, Hull will award them the equiv­a­lent of 10 Credit Ac­cu­mu­la­tion and Trans­fer (CAT) points.

HET chief ex­ec­u­tive Karen Pol­lock pointed out that par­tic­i­pants did “in­valu­able work to raise aware­ness of the lessons of the Holo­caust. We are thrilled to have their ef­forts for­mally recog­nised by a pres­ti­gious in­sti­tute of learn­ing”.

Es­tab­lished in 1998, the project has taken over 5,000 stu­dents and teach­ers to Auschwitz. In 2005, the gov­ern­ment gave the scheme fi­nan­cial sup­port which has been ex­tended to 2011.
