Hitler on Trial
The History Department took Year 9 and Year 10 students to watch a performance of Hitler on Trial this week. Hitler on Trial is a half-day presentation focused on Germany 1919 -1939 and is designed to help students improve their performance in their History examinations.
The day opened with a grade-booster workshop. The workshop was followed by a courtroom drama, in which students are asked to imagine a parallel historical world in which Adolf Hitler was captured alive by British Special Forces in 1942 and put on trial in a British court. In this court, the students are the jury and Hitler is tried for crimes against peace.
The students' behaviour was exemplary throughout the trip, well done Year 9 and Year 10.
