Teachers from all over Bulgaria will gather in Blagoevgrad on the campus of the American University in Bulgaria to participate in TOLI’s seminar about the lessons of the Holocaust. The program focuses on the impact of stereotypes and prejudice on the individual and within society; portrays Jewish life before and after the Holocaust; and promotes intercultural, student-centered teaching methods between schools and human rights organizations.
Entitled Learning from the Past – Acting for the Future: Teaching about the Holocaust and Social Justice, the seminars aim to enrich the quality of Holocaust and social justice education in Bulgaria. They provide a meaningful opportunity for participants to integrate national and international pedagogical approaches in the teaching of these challenging topics and in conveying the contemporary relevance of the Holocaust to their students.
