International Baccalaureate students visit the Sydney Jewish Museum

IB2 History students Jasmin, William, Maelyse, Jack and Emilie journeyed to the Sydney Jewish Museum with their History teacher Ms.Sweeney last Friday.

The guided tour of the museum provided a wonderful opportunity for students to explore the different displays and interact with museum staff. Our students consolidated their knowledge in a lecture with Dr. Ari Lander, who focused on power and authority in the Third Reich. Students were also very fortunate to meet and hear the testimony of Lucy, a Hungarian Holocaust survivor who escaped by living in hiding in Budapest before coming to Australia in the 1950’s. Overall it was a valuable and insightful tour and we are grateful to the museum for welcoming us.
