Online visit to the NHCM You can engage with our exhibitions, collections and survivor testimony from your own home or classroom. During our online educator-led visits we aim to develop knowledge and understanding of the experiences of Jewish people in Europe from 1933-45 and examine the process of genocide to highlight the importance of respect, and the consequences of choices made by individuals. Ultimately we hope for them to reflect on what it means to them and how they can be Upstanders in the world today. As well as exploring individual stories and our museum’s special collection, these programmes include a live webinar with a Holocaust survivor. We have been running live webinars with Holocaust survivors and pupils from local schools since lockdown began and have found them successful in providing a unique opportunity for pupils to still ‘meet’ a survivor and ask questions in a small group. The sessions take place online, with a Holocaust survivor, one of our educators as a facilitator, a teacher from your school and a group of students.
