On Tuesday 25 February, the Year 8 students visited the Sydney Jewish Museum as part of their studies in English.

At the Museum, the students were welcomed by Dr Simon Holloway who is an Education Officer at the Sydney Jewish Museum and a lecturer at the University of Sydney, where he teaches Classical Hebrew and Jewish History.

Students also had the rare opportunity to hear from a survivor, who shared her story about persecution and triumph.

The guides and educators highlighted the common experiences, fate and sufferings of the Jewish and Armenian people.

The students were praised by the organisers for being a kind, intelligent and respectful group and were invited to visit the Museum again.

Students left the Museum with a better understanding of the historical period and the suffering of those who had to endure discrimination and persecution. They also left with a sense of pride that they are the prospering generation of brave and resilient genocide survivors.
