Category 7-Seminar and Workshop

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and UNESCO will convene the Conference for International Holocaust Education in Washington, DC from September 26 to October 2, 2015.

This capacity building seminar will gather education managers from Chile, Hungary, India, the Republic of Korea, Lithuania, Mexico, Morocco, Namibia, Rwanda and Turkey. It will provide a team-oriented, project-based approach to developing a Holocaust and genocide education project relevant to each participating country’s historical and cultural context. The conference will thus increase the visibility and the impact of Holocaust and genocide studies, notably in countries where it is not yet well disseminated in the education system, and contribute to build a solid international network of dedicated senior educators.

The Conference is supported by Canada, Denmark, the Helena Rubinstein Foundation Endowment, and the Tziporah Wiesel Fund for the Study of Hungarian and Romanian Jewry.
