Holocaust Education

Working in Partnership with the Ben Uri Gallery, LGfL has produced a new Holocaust Education resource based on the Ben Uri Art Collection.

This new resource can be used to support Holocaust studies for GCSE History students, and is also intended for use by GCSE Art and Design students who wish to research Holocaust art.

This can help students to ‘deconstruct’ art works and included are ideas for further thought and discussion, as well as practical starting points for the creation of students own visual art work.

It is important to recognise that the resource explores themes identified within a number of works from the Ben Uri Gallery, the London Jewish Museum of Art collection only, and that the subject of Holocaust art is a very broad topic which may require further investigation outside of this resource.

The launch of Holocaust Education through the Ben Uri Art Collection is in support of the update to the Holocaust Explained website produced by the London Jewish Cultural Centre, which now features resources specifically targeted at Key Stage 4 students.

Bob Usher - LGfL Content manager: "This important new resource has been produced by experts in their field. Alix Smith from the Ben Uri Gallery has created resources of depth and sensitivity to widen the understanding of how key moments in history can be represented; and how art can play a role in our interpretation and understanding of such events. London Jewish Cultural Centre have also supported the development of this resource, offering their own guidance on how to present the resource and what it should be featured. We hope that History and Art teachers are able to make extensive use of the wide range of high resolution images and insightful support material that accompany each image.
