KQ Virtual Private View: Your Legacy and Me with the Jewish Museum

13 08 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sign up for this event via Eventbrite by clicking here.


Discover the Jewish Museum London’s Exhibition Your Legacy and Me, a creative project exploring the legacy of the Holocaust, created by the Holocaust Educational Trust’s young ambassadors.

Following a visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau and hearing first hand testimony from a Holocaust survivor, the young ambassadors were tasked with ensuring the Holocaust is remembered for generations; sharing their experiences and defending the truth of the past.

Inspired by the overlay work at the Jewish Museum London’s recent Charlotte Salomon: Life? or Theatre? exhibition and responding to photographs of Holocaust Survivors Solly Irving, Gerta Vrbova, Jackie Young and Elsa Shamash, the young ambassadors created thoughtful pieces of legacy art that consider the relevance of the Holocaust today.

These pieces were created over a two-day workshop hosted by the Jewish Museum London, Jami, Holocaust Educational Trust and Jackie Young.

The Holocaust Educational Trust educates young people from every background, across the UK, about the Holocaust and the important lessons to be learned for today. One of the Trust’s earliest achievements was ensuring that the Holocaust formed part of the National Curriculum for History. To date, over 41,000 students and teachers have participated in the Holocaust Educational Trust’s ground-breaking Lessons from Auschwitz (LFA) Project. This four part project includes hearing the first hand testimony of a Holocaust survivor and visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau. When students return, they become Ambassadors for the Trust, and share what they have learnt with in their colleges and communities.

The Holocaust Educational Trust’s Ambassador Programme. Through this Programme, the Trust is investing in the next generation, providing opportunities for Ambassadors to further their historical knowledge and offering practical advice on how they can encourage others to join them in remembering the Holocaust.
