Training programms for teachers in Yad Vashem

Training programms for teachers in Yad Vashem

The aim of the seminar is to enable teachers to deal intensively with the Holocaust, to mediate encounters with eyewitnesses, and to address the problems of anti-Semitism, xenophobia, right-wing radicalism and violence in class.

Sprache | language:

The teacher training project "Education after Auschwitz" has existed for more than 20 years in cooperation between the International Holocaust Memorial Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. The district government of Münster is responsible for the project, in continuous cooperation with the International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem.

"The requirement that Auschwitz not be again concerns education first." Theodor W. Adorno 1966

For graduates there is also the possibility to form an educational partnership between their school and the International School for Holocaust Studies.

The success of the training program has led to its extension to the non-formal education sector. Nowadays, also police officers and cadets as well as representatives of the judiciary visit Yad Vashem for training purposes.

Training in 2020

The next teacher training seminar “Education after Auschwitz” is planned from 10th to 23rd October 2020 in Israel. The application deadline for this has expired. At the appropriate time, we will inform you about new offers here.
