Selston High School was delighted to welcome Mr Simon Winston to the school. Simon is originally from Ukraine and having been a local teacher for many years he now speaks eloquently and movingly on his experiences as a Ukrainian Holocaust survivor who escaped the Ghetto with his family and lived in hiding from the Nazi Occupiers of his country.
Both staff students from Years 9 and 10 listened intensely reflecting upon the horrors of the Holocaust and the lessons it teaches us.
Mr Broomhead said ““It is a privilege for us to welcome Mr Winston to our school and his testimony will remain a powerful reminder of the horrors so many experienced. We are grateful to Miss Millward our History Subject Leader and the Holocaust Educational Trust for co-ordinating the visit and we hope that by hearing Simon’s testimony, it will encourage our students to learn from the lessons of the Holocaust and make a positive difference in their own lives.”
