The 15th spring season of the seminars for teachers on “How to teach about the Holocaust” took place in Prague’s Jewish Museum and the Terezin Memorial. They were attended by more than 80 Czech teachers. The three-day programme included lectures on Judaism and the Jewish settlement of Bohemia and Moravia, anti-Semitism, psychological aspects of the genocide, the history of the Jewish ghetto in Terezin, and the genocide of the Roma population.
The Terezin workshops offered to one group of participants a closer meeting with people who have gone through the ghetto, whereas the other group of participants worked with the theme of the biblical story of Queen Esther within the art therapy workshop and the last group attended a workshop of the Museum of Roma Culture in Brno. Through the workshops they had the opportunity to learn about some of the activities which the institutions offer to children within educational seminars.
