Hitler on Trial

The History Department took their Year 10 GCSE History students to watch a performance of Hitler on Trial on 7th February 2017. Hitler on Trial is a half-day presentation focused on Germany 1919 -1939 and is designed to help students improve their performance in the GCSE 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. Amazingly, this year, Hitler was found not guilty!

The students behaviour was exemplary throughout the trip, well done Year 10.
