Testimonials

After every workshop we run, we gather feedback from students and teachers alike. The feedback we receive is vitally important in helping us grow and develop our services. We have taken a vow never to 'rest on our laurels' and to always search for ways to improve. Below is a selection of the feedback that we have received during 2013 - 2014.

Feedback from Students

'...they were interesting and I enjoyed the 'chatty' nature of how we discussed more serious topics.' - Glasgow Academy

 

 

'To FYFT; Thank you very, very much for your amazing, moving emotional documentary. You educated me to understand the Holocaust. You taught me something different; the damage it had done to every soul living, not only Jewish people. It made me cry to see how one person can treat another and makes me think again how I treat others.' - Georgina from McLaren High School

 

 

'I think FYFT workshops are really important as we don't want the mistakes of the past to be repeated in the future.' - Ben from McLaren High School

 

 

'Thank you for coming in and talking to us about the Holocaust. Now I will do everything in my power to stop it happening again. It should not have happened in the first place.' - Peter from McLaren High School

 

 

'...I learned that if I see something I disagree with, then I should take action and not be a bystander.' - Novi Middle School, Michigan

 

 

'No matter what we are, we are all connected to the holocaust in some way or another. FYFT is truly amazing and inspiring.' - Novi Middle School, Michigan

 

 

'I took away that there's more we can do & that we have more impact than we think. We are the future and we need to learn to be brave and nicer to others. I learned that history does matter to us because we are part of it, and we can learn from their mistakes.' - Novi Middle School, Michigan

 

 

'One thing that I took from the discussion is to become more open minded and not to get sucked into all the social norms and stereotypes.' - Victoria from Novi Middle School, Michigan
