CITY MP VISITS AUSCHWITZ

Auschwitz

 

Lilian Greenwood, MP for Nottingham South, last week joined students from local schools to visit Auschwitz and Auschwitz-Birkenau.

 

The visit, organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust, teaches young people about the horrors of the Holocaust, urging them to never forget the atrocities - particularly, as the last generation of survivors inevitably decrease in number.

 

HET have organised visits for students since 2005, when the Government pledged £1.5 million/ year to give two students from every school in the country the chance to take part in educational visits to Auschwitz-Birkenau.

 

The City MP said:

 

"As well as being very harrowing, it's very challenging. On a personal level it will make me redouble my efforts to speak out against prejudice," she says.

 

A Nottingham Post reporter also attended the visit and their moving article can be read at:
