Holocaust by Bullets training for teachers

06 szept

Following our first and second very successful seminar in 2017 and 2018, the Holocaust Memorial Centre in Budapest together with the Yahad-In Unum research organization from France is organizing its 3rd ‘Holocaust by Bullets’ seminar for teachers on 6th -7th December 2019. 

Yahad-In Unum (“Together in One” in Hebrew and Latin) is a Paris-based non-profit organization established in 2004 by Father Patrick Desbois and dedicated to systematically identifying and documenting sites of those mass executions committed against the Jews and Roma in Eastern Europe. Through its research work, based on a unique methodology, the association has collected 6,627 testimonies of eyewitnesses and survivors of mass shootings. To this day, Yahad has conducted 155 research trips in 9 eastern European countries and has identified 2,750 extermination sites. YIU makes its unique collection of testimonies available for the educational world. YIU’s efforts are focused on the areas of Holocaust education, remembrance and research, and genocide prevention projects. (for more information: www.yahadinunum.org)

Yahad-In Unum Pilot Seminar “Learn Teach Apply” in partnership with Budapest Holocaust Memorial Center was held in Budapest on 1st-2nd December 2017, 26 teachers from Hungary, Croatia, Romania participated and have been trained in the two-day programme held at the Budapest Holocaust Memorial Centre. The seminar was a great success both from the point of view of the participants and the organisers. The teachers were eager to learn about the atrocities committed in German occupied Soviet territories between 1941-44, a subject not discussed before; it was confirmed by the positive feedback.

This year we are planning a 2-day seminar “Learn Teach Apply” adding extra presentations on specific topics related to the killings by bullets of Hungarian Jews to answer specific needs for Hungarian teachers and students. Besides the lectures given by Yahad-In Unum, the presence of a Hungarian and an Austrian expert on massacres/mass shootings committed in the Western part of the country in 1945 will enrich the sharing of knowledge and exchange concerning research. 30 participants/teachers expected from Hungary, and other European countries.

Venue: Holocaust Memorial Centre, 1094 Budapest, Páva utca 39.,
Language of the seminar: English
