Our Quality Assurance Process for Holocaust Speakers
Supporting the Quality of Our Holocaust Speakers
G2G speakers receive continuous support and training to ensure they deliver high quality, historically accurate and engaging presentations telling real Holocaust survivor stories.
All our presenters have a DBS Enhanced Certificate.
Our speaker training is based on one-to-one support and workshops.
Presenters receive one-to-one mentoring over the course of about a year from an already accredited G2G presenter or a Holocaust educator to guide them through the process of development.
Creative and Technical Advice
We provide support, advice and services to help presenters develop and manage their presentation. This includes the use of PowerPoint, video clips, subtitling, layout and formatting.
All our speakers are provided with support in researching, locating and verifying the historical background of their specific story.
“Thank you so much for your visit. A superb presentation. Pitch, pace and tone is spot on for our students. They were spellbound by the stories and I know I will get a lot of questions in subsequent lessons. Your talk as absolutely compelling . The students will remember it for a long time.”

All our presenters are strongly encouraged to take part in the following workshops:
Researching family histories, finding images and documents and ensuring historical accuracy.
How to access online research resources.
Myths about the Holocaust, and personal support for researching one’s history.
Developing and improving one’s presentation and speaking skills for delivery in-person and online.
Know your Audience
Tailoring one’s presentation for young audiences.
Reflecting on one’s motivation for telling family Holocaust stories, and its emotional impact. Led by relevant professionals.
Guidance on how to ensure safety and security for yourself and your audience.
Speakers with completed presentations are required to present to a panel of teachers and educators before becoming an accredited speaker.
The outcome is a presentation with a strong educational emphasis integrating eye-witness testimony, personal and historical photography and film, letters and other artefacts, with content fact-checked to ensure historical accuracy.
You can find information about the selection of presentations available here.
We also provide bespoke resources specific to each of our presentations that will enable educators to extend learning and reflection.
For assistance designing your educational programme, we can also direct you to contacts in our partner organisations.
