Liverpool’s U14/15s travelled to Eastern Europe this week to take part in the Ostrava Tournament and visit Auschwitz.
The squads journeyed to the Czech Republic to take on Hertha BSC, Slask Wroclaw and Banik Ostrava.
The Liverpool youngsters also laid flowers, lighted candles and paused to reflect at Auschwitz II-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland – accompanied by their coaches Anthony Ryan and Jonathan Robinson.
Academy head of education and welfare, Phil Roscoe, said: “It was a real privilege for the club to have been invited to take part in the tournament in Ostrava, where we were hosted fantastically.
“It was another brilliant trip for the boys as they were educated on the Holocaust as well as gaining a wider understanding of World War II.
“It is extremely important that the lads are given an education on such important historical events such as the Holocaust, and follows on from our recent visit from Hannah Lewis MBE from the Holocaust Educational Trust to the Academy last week.”
