Contemporary Issues Explored

Human Rights and Holocaust Speaker Event - 15 January and 5 February 2021

Year 9 students and above.

We are privileged to be welcoming back Steven Frank on two dates in 2021, so that students can hear the extraordinary story of his experience as a child survivor of the Holocaust.

To compliment Steven Frank’s talk in the afternoon, we are offering a morning workshop in collaboration with Amnesty International entitled ’We Are All Born Free: Understanding the origin and legacy of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights’.

This interactive workshop enables students to explore the story of how the Universal Declaration of Human Rights came into being and its significance that remains with us to this day. Students will explore how human rights are the fundamental rights and freedoms that belong to every single one of us, how we all have a role in promoting and protecting our rights and how the UDHR came into being following the traumatic events of World War Two.  

We will conclude the workshop at the Cathedral’s Amnesty Candle that was installed to mark the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 2008.

10 students per school.

Times and cost:

The Human Rights workshops will be at 10.30am and 11.30am for one hour at a cost of £3.50 per student.

The Holocaust Survivor talk takes place at 1.30pm and is free of charge, however there is a £20.00 non-refundable booking charge per school/college who do not book a workshop.
