From 2nd to 4th October 2015, a seminar for Czech and Polish teachers, jointly conceived with the State Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland, took place at the premises of the Terezín Memorial under the title Terezín – The Place of Memory. In addition to supplying the participants with lectures on less accented issues related to the Terezín ghetto (postwar reflection on the Holocaust in different European countries, cinematic reflection on Terezín, the development of Terezín as a place of memory, projection of the Polish-Czechoslovak film Border Aisle dealing with an uprising in the Warsaw ghetto) and a tour around the former Terezín ghetto, the seminar brought a unique opportunity for the Polish and Czech teachers to meet for human and professional reasons. Experience was shared not only during the workshop, built on comparison of methods used in Polish and Czech schools, but also in the evenings after the end of the official programme.

S příchodem nacistů se mé dětské mysli otevřely podivné obzory. Uvědomil jsem si, že nelze spontánně ctít starosty, radní, duchovní, soudce, učitele, různé přednosty, ale že si naši úctu musí zasloužit. Vždyť někteří z těch, které jsem míval v oblibě, zvedali pravici k poctě vůdce a později pilně vstupovali do komunistické strany. Začal jsem brzy lidi třídit. — Tom Luke, Kolektiv autorů: Pokoj 127, Domov mládeže Q708, Terezín, Gymnázium Plzeň a o.s. HUMR, 2007, s. 89.
