The event, organised by one of CATS Canterbury’s teachers, Mark Hopkinson, is in the final stages of his PhD looking at children and young people’s knowledge and understanding of religion, death, and the Holocaust. Mark teaches Global Politics and International Relations and is the Model United Nations programme coordinator. He encouraged the students to consider the significance of eyewitness testimonies and how soon we are likely to lose these witnesses as sources of information. The students reflected on this as they joined the Holocaust Education Trust’s Survivor Testimony webcast. This year, we heard from Eva Clarke BEM (British Empire Medal), who described her parents’ experiences of Nazi occupation in Prague and the persecution of European Jews, leading them to a variety of concentration camps. Eva herself was born in Mauthausen and managed to survive despite weighing only 3lbs. Along with her mother, she was the only surviving member of her family, 15 of whom were killed in Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination centre.
