In 2005 the first national educational visit to Auschwitz took place for Scottish pupils aged between 16-17 years. This study examines the impact this had on pupils in Fife Region, the third largest local authority in Scotland. Soon after this visit, pupils formed ‘The Auschwitz Experience Group’, and over a year organised the ‘Anne Frank and You Festival’, a large scale community initiative that focused on citizenship issues. The research sought pupil feedback on the educational visit and identified key issues of importance for teachers and cultural managers who work alongside education services.
