Seminar on “The Role of NGOs in Remembrance of the Holocaust”
October 22, 2017 - October 28, 2017
The Council of Europe – within the context of the program “Remembrance of the Holocaust and Prevention of Crimes Against Humanity” – has organised a seminar along with the Polish Ministry of Education, the Krakow pedagogical University and the Auschwitz-Birkenau International Centre which looks at “the Role of NGOs in the Remembrance of the Holocaust“.
The event will explore the responsibility of the NGO community to ensure public memory of the Holocaust is kept alive in the absence of those who witnessed it directly. It aims to promote educational practices which target the remembrance of the Holocaust and the prevention of crimes against humanity, and will look more generally at the role of NGOs in facilitating the trans-generational transmission of memory.
