Voices of the Holocaust

KS4: ages 14-16Website

This set of webpages consists of 28 oral history testimonies in the British Library sound archive, gathered from Jewish men and women who came to live in Britain during or after World War II. These testimonies are personal, individual, true stories, that describe the hardships of life during Hitler’s reign.

The project is aimed at Year 9 GCSE pupils who have already made an initial study of the Holocaust. In addition to the testimonies themselves there is extensive background information. There are also student worksheets and teachers’ notes on ways to approach this sensitive topic.
