Pre-visit supportThe pre-visit workshops which are delivered in school allow pupils to begin to address key questions regarding the identity of themselves and others. By examining their individual identity, that of their school and their local community, pupils are able to consider the importance of knowing what makes us who we are and how well we relate to others. A range of teaching methods are used to ensure that pupils engage both with the questions raised and with the range of different views expressed by their peers. They begin to see that identity is crucial to understanding ourselves and the foundation of open, successful and respectful relationships with others. By examining honestly ourselves, our values, our commitments and our interests we are able to see what links us to others, to celebrate what makes us different and to build stronger communities. The pre-visit workshops are a crucial part of ensuring that the pupils get the most from their visit to the Journey Exhibition.Visit to the CentreHaving completed the pre-visit workshops the children then visit The Journey Exhibition where they investigate the life of Leo, a ten year old German-Jewish boy living Berlin in the 1930s. The purpose of the exhibition is for the pupils to gain an awareness of how prejudice and discrimination based on the identity of an individual shaped the lives of Jewish people during the 1930s. The exhibition shows how the prejudices of ordinary people can lead to discrimination of an individual based on their identity.
