School Forums

The forums outlined below have been created at the request of our members with the express intention of helping those involved with teaching RE across the North East. The forums are split into the following areas:



Religious Education & the Holocaust

auschwitz train carriageThere are many ways of approaching the Holocaust. It is a sensitive, and sometimes contentious, subject. The materials in this forum are designed to act as resources for teachers of Religious Education teaching the Holocaust at Key Stage 3 or 4.

Some materials have been developed, or inspired by, Holocaust educators at established Holocaust Education Centres, for example Yad Vashem in Israel and the Holocaust Education Trust in the UK. Other materials are the classroom resources produced by individual RE teachers for use in their own contexts.

All the resources have been generously shared so that colleagues may have a new starting point or something upon which to reflect/build their own resources. Teacher generated resources are developed in a particular school context and will reflect the style of the author – colleagues may wish/need to edit/adapt them to their own contexts as appropriate.
