  1. The news article states: “Pupils from Backwell, Nailsea and St Katherine’s School in Pill were picked for the trip and I was also invited along to gauge their reactions and find out how they will be passing the lessons learnt onto their peers.”

    Don’t British young people – given the bloody history of their own country – have lessons to learn from places other than German camps???

    The news article states: “Approximately 1.1million people were killed in the death camps – the vast majority were Jews who were stripped, shaved and sent to the gas chambers within minutes of their arrival.”

    1.1 million people? New official death toll of the ‘Holocaust’ in German concentration camps?

    • You wrote: “1.1 million people? New official death toll of the ‘Holocaust’ in German concentration camps?”

      I think that 1.1 million is the new death toll for the 3 Auschwitz camps, not for the Holocaust. The “death toll” for the Holocaust is still the sacred 6 million.

      • I found the wording “killed in the death camps” unclear and confusing.

          In the Jewish version of the Holocaust, everyone was “killed” including those who died of typhus and malnutrition.
