Article Uploaded : 16/01/2020 21:05:21 by Midleton College


TY students as well as senior cycle History students attended a lecture today by former Auschwitz historian and tour guide Robert Nowak. The talk was part of Literacy week and complements the TY History curriculum which includes the themes of anti- semitism, the Holocaust as well as Jewish studies. It is also covered in the Leaving Cert History curriculum. With literacy is mind, Mr Nowak also stressed the importance of the faithful recording of History in an era of fake news, unreliable reporting and unverified news feeds on social media. It was received very positively by students and staff who were in attendance. The talk was also timely as International Holocaust Remembrance Day takes place on January 27th. This year, the date January 27 has added significance as it also marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz". (more pics in gallery)
