“We share a commitment to throw light on the still obscured shadows of the Holocaust.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The conference "Crossing Borders" is taking place at the Falstad Centre in Norway from September 4 - 6 2013.
The main topic of the conference is history and human rights education at historical sites and museums. The focus will be on investigating how historical learning processes, informed by human rights principles and values, can contribute to solidarity, mutual respect and the protection of human dignity. By combining relevant theory with tangible examples, the organizers wish to contribute to the development of educational theory, policy and practice in the service of sustainable democratic development and intercultural understanding.
Academics and practitioners from all over the world are participating, particularly from the main target groups of scholars, policy makers, teacher trainers, and educators from formal and informal learning institutions.
