Caringbah High School students were treated to an important lesson in history recently.
Year 11 students who study Society and Culture met Ephraim Kaye, who is the director of international seminars at Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem.
The academic expert and author’s visit came about after Caringbah High School English and history teacher, Hannah Geraghty, received a scholarship to travel to Israel to learn more about how to teach the Holocaust in the classroom.
Students are studying intercultural communication with a focus on Israel.
“Caringbah couldn’t go to Israel, so Israel came to Caringbah,” Ms Geraghty said.
Students also marked the occasion with a Kosher morning tea.
