History KS3 / GCSE: Interview with Holocaust survivor Ruth Rogoff
Ruth discusses her memories of the Holocaust and details the horrors of watching footage from concentration camp Bergen-Belsen at her local cinema.
She talks about how the footage made her feel and how it made her reflect upon the tragedy of how her own family ‘disappeared’.
Ruth also reflects on how the Holocaust has affected everything she does each day.
Your pupils could discuss what they think life within a concentration camp might have been like for people and how people were later liberated.
Pupils could research the social, legal and emotional status of the survivors and find out about organisations helped them during the time.
