The Ghetto Fighters’ House – Center for Humanistic Education hosted an International Conference with the support of the EZV foundation. The conference “Holocaust Education for Democratic Values” was designed for educators in all frameworks and fields, and sought to elucidate the theoretical and pedagogical link between educating about the Holocaust as an historical, formative event and inculcating democratic values in individuals and groups.
The summary of abstracts represents only part of the conference. It omits the panels, the ten workshops, the round-table discussions in which all those attending the conference participated, and the performances by musicians, video artists, and stage actors, who delivered their message in the language of the arts. Mainly, this summary cannot transmit – but hopefully recalls – the special atmosphere that characterized the conference sessions.
