The Holocaust is a complex, emotional and sometimes controversial subject. Nonetheless, it rarely fails to inspire and motivate students as it not only teaches them about important historical events but also reveals much about the human response to exceptional circumstances.

I am a history teacher of ten years’ experience teaching in the UK in both the state and private sectors. In 2007 I completed the Imperial War Museum Fellowship in Holocaust Education during which I developed a rationale, schemes of work and resources for a cross curricular approach to teaching about the Holocaust.

I have assisted teachers of English, Art, MFL, RS and Citizenship as well as my fellow history teachers in developing their own Schemes of Work and teaching strategies so that they can make the Holocaust an accessible, motivating and enriching subject for their students.

I am currently working freelance as a Holocaust Educator, having just completed my first freelance project working with the IWM North on a Teaching the Holocaust CPD day for NQTs, ITTs and teachers new to this topic.

I hope you find this site useful and I welcome any constructive comments!
