The “Holocaust as a starting point” project received financial support from the European Union as part of the “Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme” (CERV) – “Remembrance” strand.

Six seminars were organized in 2022 by the Shoah Memorial with its European partners (Ministry of Education, NGO, museum). 282 teachers/educational staff from 13 European countries (France, Lithuania, Germany, Poland, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain) participated in these trainings.

Taking the Holocaust as a starting point and emphasizing local history, the six trainings aimed to address sensitive and common regional issues, and contemporary educational challenges such as racial prejudice, conspiracy theory, hate speech and gender-based violence. They provided teachers with the content and tools needed to teach about the Holocaust and local mass atrocities in Europe related to the 20th century, promote students’ critical thinking and deal with negative classroom attitudes (denial or distortion of Holocaust, nationalist visions, etc.).
