Holocaust Memorial Day Trust – Secondary tutor time ideas

What's included?

Powerpoint and PDF teaching notes

Key Stage

KS3, KS4


Years 7-11


The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust has designed this set of five activities for you to use in tutor times.

They include short activities and discussion questions to introduce students to the genocides we remember on Holocaust Memorial Day. Students will learn about people affected by the Holocaust and genocide and explore a range of themes.

As well as learning more about each genocide, you’ll challenge students to think about their own social responsibility, and what we can do to make a difference today.

This PDF contains five activity sheets to help you lead the sessions. There is also an accompanying PowerPoint with the slides for all five activities to display to your students. The charity has designed these for you to use together.

You could do the five sessions across a week to mark HMD with your tutor group.

The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust has built in differentiation to help you adapt the activities for mixed-ability groups and students with SEN requirements.

The UK government established and funds the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust. Its role is to promote and support Holocaust Memorial Day in the UK. Find out more about HMDT and get more free teaching resources at Follow on Twitter at @HMD_UK.
