Every year on the Public Services course, 2 students are chosen to participate in a trip to Auschwitz Death and Concentration Camp in Poland via The Holocaust Educational Trust. This year Katie Smith and Eve Snowdon were picked. They travelled to and from Poland in the same day with over 200 students from Yorkshire schools and colleges.
As part of the project, the students were told to provide feedback to their schools/colleges about the journey they embarked on. The whole point is to deliver back about the individuals that suffered and lived through the Holocaust and how they were persecuted. Also that everyone knows the victims as numbers. Nobody remembers who they were as people and their stories.
Katie and Eve's story is displayed in the Pen-y-ghent building foyer.
