This fifth meeting in Zagreb is organized to continue discussions on the renovation of the Pavilion nr. 17, located within the State Museum of Auschwitz-Birkenau, Poland, and on the setting up of a joint exhibition for 6 Ex-Yugoslav countries on the Holocaust. It should serve to present and discuss the new items selected by each delegation for each chapter, and review consolidated texts drafted by the Editorial Committee.

This meeting should allow for an update on the situation and the relevant follow-up actions. In addition, the meeting should favour further exchange on matters pertaining to the designing of the exhibition.

The objectives of this meeting are in line with UNESCO’s overall mission to promote Holocaust education, as well as the role of museums as tools for intercultural understanding, research and dialogue. The meeting is supported by the UNESCO Venice Office through UNESCO’s Intersectoral Platform for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence.
