The Royal Harbour


Visit from Holocaust Survivor

On Monday 25th March, students at RHA welcomed Hungarian Holocaust survivor, John Hadjue MBE, into school to hear about his life both during and after the Holocaust. John, who was born in Hungary in 1937, and subsequently moved to Britain in 1957 following the events of the Holocaust and subsequent Soviet invasion, spoke to a group of GCSE History students and took a number of thoughtfully posed questions. Students involved will be presenting John's story to other RHA learners via assemblies over the next two terms. John commented on how fantastic it was to be able to come and share his story and how impressed he was with the students' questions. 

John’s final message for the students was to be “nice human beings” and to see beyond a person's skin colour, race or religion. Year 10 student Lewis, commented “It was nice to hear from someone who lived through the history we have learnt about”. Fellow Year 10 student Maddison, also noted that “it was a great opportunity to learn about someone's personal experience of the Holocaust”. 

The school thanks the Holocaust Education Trust for enabling this event to take place.
