On the days of 19 to 25 July 2010, a seminar for Czech teachers took place, organized by the French Mémorial de la Shoah in Paris in cooperation with the Terezín Memorial. Twenty Czech teachers were to visit Paris, and not just any teacher either – all of them had previously attended the four-grade educational cycle of the Terezín Memorial and succeeded in the selection process based on their own school projects.

The seminar took place on the premises of Mémorial de la Shoah and was visited by the Czech Ambassador in France, Pavel Fischer. The seminar lasted for nearly four days and despite the fact that teachers who participated were all already highly educated in the subject, in the end they all agreed it was very helpful to them as teachers and specialists. Among the topics they found especially intriguing were other genocides of the 20th century (in Armenia and Rwanda), as well as lectures on French history during World War II and the Holocaust, the legal aspect of genocide or the very emotional and beautiful meeting with a Holocaust survivor. All in all, the seminar was very, very good and when we add to everything mentioned the exemplary care we received from our hosts (such as lunch and dinner consisting of local specialities served in a different restaurant each time), the evening tours of the Eiffel Tower or Champs-Élysées, you will surely believe us when we say we will remember our French adventure for years to come…
