The International Center for Education about Auschwitz and the Holocaust (ICEAH), at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, will hold a conference entitled The Future of Auschwitz and the Holocaust Education in Authentic Memorial Sites, at the Auschwitz Memorial on October 10-12, 2018.

 

The conference aims to summarize the project, coordinated by the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum and the Anne Frank House in the years 2015-2018. The joint venture The Future of Auschwitz and Holocaust Education and Authentic Memorial Sites included activities that focused on improving professional skills of teachers and museum educators, and training of young leaders, primarily in teaching about tolerance and respect for human rights, as well as about the origin of racism and anti-Semitism.

The project consisted of five components: on-line education, teachers exchange, study travels for educators of the Auschwitz Memorial, creation of a group of young leaders and adaptation of a visit to the Memorial to the perception of people with special educational needs. The effects of the three-year long project and the description of each of these components will be presented and summarized during the conference.

Please find attached the Conference program. The conference agenda will include panel discussions, presentation of the three years project results and the new guiding tours scenarios set up by the museum through this project. Discussions and activities will be held at the Municipal Public Library and in the Auschwitz Memorial. The language of the conference is Polish and English.

REGISTRATION Of PARTICIPANTS HAS BEEN COMPLETED.
