Teens sitting on the Berlin Holocaust memorial

This workshop is designed for Key Stage 3 teachers to develop insights into Holocaust pedagogy through an innovative new website that serves as an important teaching and learning resource in Holocaust Studies.

Following the success of Professor Nikolaus Wachsmann's book ‘KL: A History of the Nazi Concentration Camps’ (2015), a website on the 'Nazi Concentration Camps' has been developed to put this acclaimed research into the domain of secondary school teachers and students.

The workshop will consist of three parts:

  1. An insight into Professor Wachsmann's and UCL's research
  2. An overview of student misconceptions on the camps, and of pedagogical approaches
  3. An insight into the site itself

Attendees will be working with Professor Nikolaus Wachsmann, Professor in Modern European History at Birkbeck (University of London) and Tom Haward, from the UCL Centre for Holocaust Education.
