On Wednesday 25 September 2019, Solihull School will host a CPD day for colleagues nationwide on Tackling Prejudice and Discrimination in the Digital Age: What Can Schools Do? and they would like to invite you colleagues from your school to join us for a unique event centred around the extraordinary life story of Eva Schloss.

Eva will join you for a Q&A after a performance of And Then They Came for Me, a critically acclaimed play about her remarkable family history and an exhibition, The Promise, about the artistic talents her brother Heinz cultivated whilst hiding from the Nazis for two years. It is the first time the play and the exhibition will be shown together.

Furthermore, the day will also involve a series of prominent speakers and organisations who will cover a wide range of relevant topics, whilst providing practical advice and measures for teachers interested in developing such initiatives in their own schools. Further information about the programme can be found in the attached flyer.

Places on the Wednesday CPD event on 25 September 2019 can be booked at a subsidised rate of £95 via the TryBooking link here:
