Twelve schoolchildren visited Auschwitz earlier this month as part of a Holocaust Educational Trust project.

A day was spent exploring the former camp’s barracks and crematoria, before concluding the day with a period of reflection for the six million Jews killed in the holocaust.

Five borough schools - Bromley High School, in Blackbrook Lane, Hayes School, in West Common Road, Newstead Wood School, in Avebury Road, Orpington and Bullers Wood School, in St Nicolas Lane, and Charles Darwin School, in Biggin Hill - were represented on the trip by two pupils.

Isabelle Gould, a pupil from Bullers Wood School, said: “I am unable to put into words how thought-provoking and inspiring the LFA experience has been.”
