Compelling Talk by Holocaust Survivor, Freddie Knoller
On Tuesday 7th March we welcomed Holocaust survivor Freddie Knoller to Bloxham to talk to 3rd and 4th Form Historians about his experiences as a European Jew in the period 1938-45.
Students started by watching an incredibly moving documentary about Freddie's wartime experiences (produced originally for the BBC), before participating in a 30 minute question and answer session. The manner in which students dealt with such a distressing and sensitive subject was extremely impressive, and the thoughtful questions posed were testimony to the impact of Freddie's story.
