Post-16 Learning Sessions

  • Students investigate a lesser known aspect of the First World War through IWM's Collections. They then apply their research by selecting material to produce a mini exhibition on the topic.

  • A lecture-based study day for A level students and teachers covering aspects of Nazi policy and its impact on Germany and the Second World War. The conference will also consider themes related to the Holocaust and its historical and personal legacy.
  • Students investigate documents, film and sound to learn about the life of Werner Lehmann between1933 and 1939, and the wider context of life in Nazi Germany for a teenage boy.

  • Using objects related to The Holocaust Exhibition, students explore how we study history and how objects can enrich our understanding of the past.

  • Through discussion and reflection students will prepare to visit The Holocaust Exhibition. Students are also given an audio guide to navigate their way through a chronological narrative of the Holocaust and deepen their understanding of events in Nazi-occupied Europe and beyond.

  • A new session based upon the 'Visions from Above and Below' Exhibition currently under development.

  • A visit to IWM London supports studies of war and conflict from 1914 until the present day.
