About Us

Learning from the Righteous is an educational charity
that works with 10 – 14 year old children.

We believe a child’s first encounter with The Holocaust will determine their relationship with the subject for the rest of their lives and should elicit empathy not trauma. By recounting the true stories of people who chose to save Jews and others during The Holocaust we aim to instil positive attitudes and promote mutual understanding in our students. We explore the dilemmas faced by the exceptional individuals who chose not to be bystanders and encourage children to reflect upon what they can do to counter racism, inequality and intolerance today. Each workshop focuses on a specific act of rescue and challenges participants to devise practical ways of making a difference to the lives of others. Learning from the Righteous also provides training opportunities for teachers so that they acquire the knowledge and confidence to use our resources effectively.
