After two and a half years, a seminar for educators from Denmark took place again, this time enriched by the presence of their British colleagues. The seminar was held from 13th to 16th February 2015, with active participation of representatives of the following organizing institutions: Yad Vashem (Israel), Holocaust Educational Trust (UK), Danish Institute for International Studies (Denmark) and Terezín Memorial.
Twenty-eight teachers, lecturers and other people active in education for three days immersed in the topic of the Terezin ghetto through lectures, tours, workshops, films etc. Among the natural highlights of the workshop were meetings with ghetto survivors, Dagmar Lieblová and Doris Grozdanovičová, as well as a performance of children’s opera Brundibar acted by the Disman Radio Children’s ensemble.
Seminar participants and present organizers very positively assessed the seminar and expressed desire and will to organize it next year again. Thus, hopefully we can look forward to another meeting soon!
