Year 9 History

Our Year 9s this half-term will be exploring the Holocaust  using the medium of Elie Wiesel's book entitled Night. Wiesel published this book as a memoir to his personal experiences of ghettoisation, deportation, transport and camp internment during the Second World War.

Our students will use this book to generate their own understanding of how people at the time experienced the Holocaust. As part of their enquiry into this period, the students will write their own biography of Elie Wiesel's experiences during this period. Different groups will be responsible for writing different chapters and each chapter will be published in our weekly Braeburn newsletter. Please keep an eye out for the first installment next week!
