This sixth meeting is organized to continue discussions on the renovation and transformation of the Block nr. 17, located within the State Museum of Auschwitz-Birkenau, Poland, and on the setting up of a joint exhibition for Ex-Yugoslav countries (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia, and The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) on the Holocaust.

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.
