Module overview

Within this module you will undertake a group field trip to one or morea European capital cities which haveas a notable Jewish history and a link to the Holocaust through extant heritage sites and spaces of commemoration and learning. Examples of possible cities include: Warsaw, Vilnius, Kracow, Amsterdam, Budapest, Prague, Nuremberg. You will work as a team to organise your trip, choosing the destination, booking flights and accommodation, and deciding which sites and spaces to visit while there. During your trip you will explore how heritage sites present the Holocaust to their audience. Each of you will act as a guide for one of the sites you visit, creating a travel guide to that space.

If, for any reason, you are unable to travel, you can participate in this module virtually. You would record your guide of a site or commemorative space for the students taking the tour to listen to or give your presentation virtually. You will take a tour of the relevant sites online. The second assessment will be replaced by a 2000-word essay reflecting on the way the Holocaust is remembered and presented in the city(ies) and country of the walking tour, using digital resources made available by museums and commemorative spaces.
