Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

 

Welcome to Holocaust Studies at ICE, a new venture led by ICE academic Dr Gilly Carr, who is a member of the UK delegation of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA).

ICE’s programme in Holocaust Studies is focused on the connections between Britain and the Holocaust by taking an approach that examines the involvement of Britain before, during and after the Second World War.

Postgraduate Certificate in Britain and the Holocaust - Now open for applications!
Apply by 29 May 2020

The new Postgraduate Certificate in Britain and the Holocaust is the only course of its type in the country. Taught in a series of three-day teaching blocks over three termly units, the course explores the multiple ways in which the rise of Nazism and the Holocaust touched Britain, both before, during and long after WWII. The first unit examines the refugee crisis of the 1930s, as those fleeing Nazism sought refuge in Britain, only to face antisemitism and rising fascism in the UK too. In the second unit students will learn about the impact of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution in the Channel Islands, the only part of the British Isles to be occupied. The third unit explores the legacy of the Holocaust since 1945 in the realms of heritage, literature, culture, education and film.
