“Our commitment must be to remember the victims who perished, respect the survivors still with us, and reaffirm humanity's common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance is pleased to announce the publication of a set of bibliographies in fifteen languages to accompany the third volume in its publication series: "Research in Teaching and Learning about the Holocaust: A Dialogue Beyond Borders".
The bibliographies comprise almost 400 studies resulting in roughly 640 publications in fifteen languages that are grouped in the following eight language sets: German, Polish, French, the languages of the Nordic countries, Romance languages other than French (specifically Spanish, Portuguese and Italian), East-Slavic languages (Belarussian, Russian and Ukrainian), English and Hebrew.
The bibliographies presented here contain titles in the original language and translations in English, as well as abstracts in English that were either written by the original authors, written by the research team or its contributors (or translated into English by the team). This set of bibliographies provides a unique tool for researchers and educators, allowing them to gain insight into educational research dealing with teaching and learning about the Holocaust, not only in their own language, but also in languages they are not familiar with. We hope that this publication and these abstracts will provide a tool that facilitates research across language borders and contributes to further exchange, discussion and cooperation between researchers and educators as well as the creation of international and cross-language networks.
In 2013, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance decided to carry out a study to establish a picture of this emerging field of research. A multilingual expert team, mandated to collect and review research in fifteen languages, identified nearly 400 studies resulting in more than 600 publications. The multilingual focus of the project enables cross-cultural analyses and the transfer of knowledge between various regions and countries. This innovative transnational, trans-lingual study carries the field beyond anecdotal reflections and moral arguments and reflects IHRA’s core mission: to strengthen and advance teaching and learning about the Holocaust worldwide.
The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance unites governments and experts to strengthen, advance and promote Holocaust education, research and remembrance and to uphold the commitments to the 2000 Stockholm Declaration.
