In late May 2015, 30 Polish teachers visited the Terezín Memorial to take part in the third year of the seminar for Polish teachers, organized by the Terezín Memorial in collaboration with the State Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau and IPN (Instytut Pamięci Narodowej).

The three-day seminar was opened with a lecture of Tomáš Fedorovič on the position of the Terezín ghetto in the Nazi plans to exterminate the Jewish population. Participants were offered an insight on this issue through documents preserved from the time before the establishment of the ghetto as well as during its existence. The following presentation by Jan Roubínek brought students into the post-war period, an era when the society was dealing with the persecution of the Jews during WW2. In a very comprehensive manner, he introduced different developmental stages which most countries went through in connection with this problem. The following day was devoted to tours of the former ghetto and the police prison in the Small Fortress. The highlight of the day was a meeting with Mrs. Dagmar Lieblová, the former prisoner and surviver of the Terezín ghetto and the extermination camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Finally, the seminar participants were informed about the educational activities of the Terezín Memorial and Doc. Vojtěch Blodig presented Terezín as a place of memory, talking about the history and development of the Terezín Memorial. Se
