3rd Educational Seminar on the Holocaust

3rd Educational Seminar on the Holocaust


The struggle against anti-Semitism and racism is still today a struggle of principle for the protection of basic human rights: an open, inclusive, cosmopolitan society with solidarity is an imperative today. A society willing to recognise the right to dignity for every human by accepting diversity. This is the only way to make sure that crimes of the scale of the Holocaust will not be repeated.

29-31.03.2019,  Thessaloniki (Amphitheatre I KEDEA, G Septemvriou avenue)

On 29-31 March the third seminar on the Holocaust in education was organised by the School of Philosophy and Education of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki, with the support of the General Consulate of the Federal Republic of Germany in Thessaloniki, the Consulate of the United States in Thessaloniki and the Heinrich Boell Foundation Greece.

During the three-day educational seminar on the Holocaust, in which participated about 70 teachers of all grades, journalists students and others, new projects were presented on the history of the Holocaust and an exchange of good pratices took place in order to encourage the endeavour of teaching such subjects. The first seminar took place in 2012 and the second in 2014. In particular, labs and presentations took place on the matters concerning the teaching of the Holocaust through litterary works, storytelling, personal accounts in schools, as well as through photographic material among others.
