Berwick Year 9 students contemplated the value of human rights in the context of the Jewish Holocaust in WWII by engaging with a firsthand account from Holocaust survivor, Paul Grinwald, recently over Zoom.

Born to Jewish parents in Paris 1933 (the year Hitler was made Vice Chancellor of Germany) Paul told our students his account of life during the Nazi occupation of France 1940-1944 and the decay of human rights that resulted in the systematic deaths of around 6 million Jewish people in Europe.

His message was that there is only one race, the human race, and we should all value the wonderful diversity this brings to our lives.
