Learning first-hand about the horrors of WWII

Bob Narev survived the Holocaust.

In 1936 his father was fired from his job as a secondary school teacher because the Nazis didn’t think it was appropriate for a Jewish man to teach non-Jewish children. Then in August 1942, his family were deported to the concentration camp called Thereinestadt, where his father and grandparents died.

Exploring the theme of War and Peace, our Year 9 Social Studies and English STEAM classes were very fortunate to have Bob re-account his painful story of how he managed to survive. Bob reminded us of this famous quote by philosopher Edmund Burke: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing”. Through Bob’s harrowing account we are able to learn why it’s important to stand-up for cultural inclusivity and peace.
