07/07/2014

The Tom Lantos Institute (Budapest), the Eötvös Loránd University Faculty of Education and Psychology (Budapest), and CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe (Brussels) are organizing a European Summer School, on “Prejudice, Genocide, Remembrance” for civil servants, educators, journalists, and civil society representatives.

The Summer School combines substantive education with skills training. It employs a multidisciplinary approach that complements Holocaust education with human rights training. In its methodology it combines collective-memory workshops with the discussion of relevant cases of human rights violations and the teaching of skills to prevent and counter these violations. The principle goal of this training is to develop understanding of the ways collective memories of traumatic past events shape inter-community relations in the present. Furthermore, the training situates prejudice and genocide in the context of human rights and democratic values.

The Summer School is supported by the Civil Fund-2014 of the Holocaust Memorial Year in Hungary and the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.
