Subjects in Brief
- Visitors to the National Museum of Scotland are being challenged to track down its ugliest, fiercest, smelliest and oldest objects in Museum Explorer, a new app on iTunes. It asks visitors to choose a category on their phone, then follow the clues to find the relevant object in the museum, which could be anywhere across its 36 galleries.
- The 100th visit by UK students to Auschwitz-Birkenau was joined last week by deputy prime minister Nick Clegg. He said the key to success of the Lessons from Auschwitz Project was "the emphasis on supporting students to take the lessons home and become ambassadors against racism, hatred and prejudice in all its forms."
