“I found it so interesting and unbelievable to actually hear from a Holocaust survivor, I will always remember this.”
“I believe this excursion to be one of the best that I have experienced in nearly 30 years of teaching. It was a credit to all concerned and such a program must be continued.”
“When you don’t stand up or speak up, you are accepting that the situation is okay. I learnt no matter the issue you have to stand up to the mistreatment of others.”
‘The presentation was impressive, powerful and moving. I felt honoured to hear Peter’s story in person. I have already spoken to staff at school about how we might include it in our RRRR curriculum – you refreshed my motivation.’
“A wonderful program exceptionally well implemented by enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers.”
“Thank you so much for telling your story. You’ve made me realise that there is a light at the end of the tunnel as I have been going through a hard time.”
“The program links the past with current day perfectly. The students clearly made connections with Upstanders in WWII to current students/Upstanders and saw that they have the ability to be an Upstander.”
“A wonderful PD – so impactful!”
“It sparked the realisation that we do have the responsibility to stand up and voice our concerns, to make a difference when we believe something unjust is occurring. Thank you for telling these important and inspirational stories. It was eye-opening for everybody.”
“Real life education activity which helps engage students in understanding the Holocaust and the “Upstanding” message. A great experience, especially for our rural students who cannot travel to Melbourne.”
“I loved the Survivor’s testimony and definitely have takeaways for my classroom and entire school.”
