Woodside High School welcomes Joan Salter
Friday 27 January 2017
Woodside High School proudly welcomed Holocaust survivor, Joan Salter, on 20 January as part of a visit organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust. Joan gave her story to Year 9 and 10 students, from when she was born in 1940, through to her parents' experience during horrific circumstances.
Student, Amerisa Nutaj, said:
It was really inspiring to hear Joan's story. I particularly liked her message of peace - to never discriminate or be prejudiced and to celebrate difference.
Gerry Robinson and Elma Mc Elligott, Co-Heads at Woodside High School said:
It is a privilege for us to welcome Joan Salter to our school and her testimony will remain a powerful reminder of the horrors so many experienced. We are grateful to the Holocaust Educational Trust for co-ordinating the visit and we hope that by hearing Joan’s testimony, it will encourage our students to learn from the lessons of the Holocaust and make a positive difference in their own lives.
The testimony was followed by a question and answer session to enable students to better understand the nature of the Holocaust and to explore its lessons in more depth.
