Lessons from Auschwitz Project

The Lessons from Auschwitz Project (LFA) for teachers and sixth-form students is is a venture by the Holocaust educational Trust in the UK.

It is a four-part cours which explores the universal lessons of the Holocaust and its relevance for today.

Part 1: Orientation Seminar

At the half-day Orientation Seminar, participants meet their group and LFA Educator, prepare for their visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau, hear a Holocaust Survivor speak of their experiences, and learn about pre-war Jewish life.

Part 2: Visit to Poland

On the one-day visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau (departing and returning on the same day), participants tour authentic sites and museum exhibits with both an Auschwitz-Birkenau guide and a trained LFA Educator who leads group discussions. The visit concludes with a commemorative ceremony at the ruins of gas chambers.

Part 3: Follow-up Seminar

At the half-day Follow-up Seminar, participants reflect on their experiences, consider the current relevance of the lessons of the Holocaust, and discuss practical ideas for spreading these lessons.

Part 4: Next Steps

After the Follow-up Seminar, participants are required to complete a follow-up project of their choosing aimed at sharing their experiences of visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau and disseminating the lessons they have learned to their schools and communities.
