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.

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.
