News round-up - preview
Leighton Park – at Auschwitz
Two sixth formers from Leighton Park joined twenty students from state and independent schools across Reading for an unforgettable visit to Auschwitz and Birkenau recently
  • Hope Clayton and Vanya Ivbule, students in the lower sixth, visited the concentration camp barracks at Auschwitz, then travelled on to Birkenau to see the remains of the gas chambers and crematoria

  • Hope said: 'I still can't come to terms with what we saw
  • I think it will have an impact on all of us forever
  • I had expected to feel sad, but it was more anger and shock that people could do this to one another
  • We saw cases full of shoes from babies and children and iron limbs from disabled people, the most innocent victims of all
  • It has so many lessons to teach all of us but what went on there, this genocide, is still going on in parts for the world, for example in Darfur, and the world appears to be letting it happen
  • '
