On Friday, 3rd February students from Year 9 visited Lidice and the Terezin small fortress. It was an eye-opening experience where students discovered the horror of the reprisal following Reinhard Heydrich’s assassination and the conditions in which prisoners were held at the Terezín small fortress. Year 9 will now be learning more about the Nazi regime in history lessons and it is hoped that they will now be able to better understand what occurred in Czechoslovakia through this hands-on experience.
