Teachers and educators from Croatia at a teacher-training seminar on Holocaust at Yad Vashem
From 22-29 April 2018, a group of 25 Croatian teachers and educators participate at the teacher-training seminar on Holocaust at the International School for Holocaust Studies at the Yad Vashem - the World Holocaust Remembrance Centre. The seminar covers the topics of Judaism and Holocaust from different perspectives (history, arts, personal stories), antisemitism, as well as methods of teaching Holocaust at elementary and high-schools. The seminar was opened by a short on-topic lecture by Ms. Tina Krce, Chargée d"Affaires of the Embassy of Republic of Croatia, emphasizing, among other things, the importance of Holocaust education in the overall bilateral, Croatian-Israeli, cooperation. Ms. Krce also briefly presented the Embassy’s activities on the theme of Holocaust. Croatian teachers and experts have been participating regularly at the seminars from 2006, as a part of a cooperation based on the Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of Science and Sports of the Republic of Croatia, Education and Teacher Training Agency of the Republic of Croatia and the Yad Vashem, with around 250 Croatian teachers and educators participating so far.
