GCSE history students were given the opportunity to hear the testimony of a Holocaust survivor at the Peele Community College in Long Sutton.

Rudi Oppenheimer spoke following a workshop which had been delivered by Mike Levy of the Holocaust Educational Trust.

He gave a talk on his tremendous courage during the horrific circumstances he found himself in and enabled students to learn where prejudice and racism can lead to through his vivid and detailed testimony.

Students at the talk and the workshop said how inspiring and emotional the day had been.

Kayleigh Hardy, a student who attended the talk, said: “My eyes have been truly opened. His story was so full of detail and emotion and I was very honoured to have met him.”

Harry Baldry, who was also at the talk, said: “Meeting Rudi made me realise how lucky my childhood was and how much determination, intelligence and inner strength Rudi must have had to live through the Holocaust.”
