This resource supports secondary school teachers to use the new interactive Holocaust education website Ordinary Objects Extraordinary Journeys in the classroom.
Visit the Ordinary Objects Extraordinary Journeys website here. The website features four people affected by the Holocaust, their stories, objects and journeys.
This resource gives an overview of the site, navigation and content, and ideas for using it as part of the History curriculum or to mark Holocaust Memorial Day with students. It also includes a PowerPoint presentation to share some of the site’s content in the classroom, with questions for discussion.
‘Ordinary Objects Extraordinary Journeys’ was produced by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust and The National Holocaust Centre and Museum, together with the Jewish Museum of Greece.
Please note, we recommend the site is suitable for age 13+ for free exploration. However, this learning resource offers safe ways that younger students can also take part.
