International Library Platform for Education About the Holocaust
In this session you will find out more about the project “International Library Platform for Education About the Holocaust”, which proposes a new strategy for engaging libraries and library infrastructure in education about the Holocaust.
There is an unexplored and under utilised potential of libraries and librarians in Holocaust education, particularly given today’s digital transformation of museums, cultural heritage and culture of remembrance. We must open existing teacher-training infrastructure for other multipliers, such as librarians and archivists, and prepare them for new, active roles in education about the Holocaust while utilizing their specific expertise, organizational structures and facilities, and the Holocaust-related material to which they have access. In this session you'll find out more about this project, awarded with the Yehuda Bauer Grant award by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance IHRA.
This session took place at Europeana 2020.
