“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
What do we really know about Holocaust education? On what basis can we plan for the future?
After 25 years of grand but unsubstantiated claims about the transformative effect of teaching and learning about the Holocaust, IHRA has gathered and analysed empirical research from 30 countries in 15 languages. This conference will gather researchers, educators, policy-makers, and funders to disseminate and discuss the results of this ground-breaking project.
IHRA's International Research Conference on Education about the Holocaust
Date: (14) 15-16 (17) February 2016
Location: Lucerne, Switzerland
Join us to discuss the findings and to better understand the challenges and opportunities in teaching and learning about the Holocaust. Let us begin to plan together for the next 25 years: an era when, for the first time, policy decisions, classroom approaches, research agendas, and funding can be grounded in evidence of what is really needed.
A detailed description, the program can be found in the conference flyer and at the website of the University of Teacher Education in Lucerne.
The conference proceedings will be published as part of the IHRA publication series.
