In conjunction with the education department and the places of memory department, the training department offers professionals, teachers, police officers, judges and students activities year round. Two summer universities, one in Paris, the other in Poland, and a winter university in Israel, round out the Memorial’s training offer.
The cultural activities department organizes events in the auditorium as well as temporary exhibitions at the Memorial and outside its walls, in France and abroad. It also runs the Multimedia Learning Center and the bookshop.
The places of remembrance department offers support and expertise in developing places of memory. It is especially involved in projects to preserve and develop former internment camps, such as the Camp des Milles and the internment camps in the Loiret. The department also organizes trips to places of remembrance, especially Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland.
Founded in 1946, Le Monde juif was the world’s first journal focusing on the Holocaust. It became the Revue d’histoire de la Shoah in 1997. The bi-annual publication is not just a research tool, but also a place where researchers and witnesses from around the world can reflect and exchange ideas. The journal’s staff also co-publishes the works in the Shoah Memorial collection with Calmann-Lévy.
The communication department aims to give the Shoah Memorial the highest possible public profile not just in France, where the cultural offer is especially dense, but also internationally. It also sets up media and institutional partnerships and develops and distributes all the Memorial’s in-house and external communication materials.
