Outreach Workshop

The Journey learning programme teaches your students about a young boy in 1930s Berlin named Leo. By the end of the programme students will understand how Jewish people were persecuted in Germany as well as why ordinary people might become refugees.

KS2 Outreach

Pupils explore the narrative of the central character Leo, a ten-year-old Jewish boy forced to leave Germany as a refugee on board the Kindertransport in December 1938. Through handling objects, and listening to Leo’s diary extracts and testimonies, the workshop addresses aspects of Leo’s identity, community and school life and the historical events of the November Pogrom.

Your pupils will examine key aspects of Leo’s experiences, the intensifying isolation and complex themes such as the influence of propaganda; identity and antisemitism. The enquiry-based learning and deductive activities focus on the development of critical thinking skills.
