Every year, the Memorial offers courses in Europe to teach the history of the Holocaust, shed new light on mass crimes and State violence and share the historiographical advances on these topics.
The seminars are intended not just for teachers, but also various representatives of civil society and government, including journalists, civil servants and members of organizations. Experts and museum directors are also encouraged to attend.
Continuous training for history teachers is spotty in many European countries, especially those that still have issues with their pasts, such as Greece, Estonia, Ukraine and Macedonia. The Memorial therefore forges long-term cooperation in Eastern Europe and the Balkans while developing new partnerships at the request of local authorities or non-governmental organizations in countries that until now have not taken an interest in Holocaust education issues, such as Portugal.
Challenging remembrance gaps: a project funded by the European Commission under the Europe for Citizens programme. The project consists of 7 multilateral teacher trainings across Europe.
