Archway School

Visit from Mr Harry Bibring—Holocaust Survivor  

On 9th October Archway welcomed Harry Bibring back to Archway for the day. 

Mr Bibring is a Holocaust survivor who is now 90 years old. He volunteers to speak to young people about the Holocaust.

     He enjoys coming to Archway and our students were full of questions for him. Many chose to have a photograph with him at the end of the day.

    Mr Bibring told Y9 students and Sixth Form History students about his life and experiences in Vienna during anti-Semitic attacks in 1938, his journey to safety in Britain and the death of his parents in camps when his family were taken away.

     Apart from this opportunity to meet a Holocaust survivor, his testimony links to many subject areas-particularly GCSE RS and History and Personal Development.

     Mr Bibring’s visit is supported by the Holocaust Educational Trust whose aim is to raise awareness and understanding in schools and amongst the wider public of the Holocaust and its relevance today.
