Speaker information

Dr Rebecca Hale, UCL Institute of Education

In 2013, the UCL Centre for Holocaust Education launched the world’s largest ever study of secondary school students’ knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust. Almost 8,000 students across England completed a survey and over 200 students took part in focus groups. This research has now been completed and Becky Hale will share some of the key findings in this talk. She will discuss how (despite the Holocaust being on the curriculum for almost 25 years) student knowledge and conceptual understanding is often limited and based on inaccuracies and misconceptions. She will talk about the implications of these findings, and provide recommendations for teaching and learning about the Holocaust.
