"The exhibition was the perfect platform to challenge and educate students about the Holocaust and also about the human condition.”
Education Officer, Lakes District Museum
"Last year our students were fortunate to experience the Shadows of Shoah exhibition. After seeing the exhibition myself and discussions with students while we walked back to school, I knew I had to organise for all my students to see it. The boys were profoundly impacted by the stories of the survivors and the simple, honest and powerful presentation. I highly recommend you see Shadows of Shoah."
James Hannah, Dilworth School, Auckland
"The exhibition was very impressive and extremely moving. Students were left speechless while they were there and were talking about it for most of the journey home. I have just walked past a group of students in the corridor who were still talking about it."
Wentworth School, Auckland
"Diocesan School for Girls in Auckland has been privileged to host the Shadows of Shoah exhibition which was viewed by students of Social Studies, History, English and Religious Studies, members of the wider community and neighbouring schools. The response has been overwhelmingly positive.
The absence of graphic Holocaust images actually heightened the power of the survivors’ stories as they spoke of their experiences as a child. The original music is powerful and evocative, the photography captures both the vulnerability and resilience of the survivors, and the creative display of picture and text on the screens communicates the gravity of these historical events in a way that connects with the current generation.
I recommend this exhibition to schools throughout the country without hesitation."
The Reverend Sarah Moss, Chaplain, Diocesan School for Girls in Auckland
