  • Overview

    London has both shaped and been shaped by the history and memory of the Holocaust, whether from the arrival of Jewish children in Waterloo Station in 1943, to the plans in 2021 to build a major Holocaust memorial next to Westminster Parliament. In this module, students will learn about the history and memory of the Holocaust through the sites and memories in London, and in doing so understand how the Holocaust is entangled with global sites, identities and memories. They will think critically about how history tells us not only about the past, but also about the present.
