Holocaust Education in Crisis? Challenges and Responses
|Date||Tue, Nov 10, 9:00am - 10:00am|
Recent surveys have shown that historical knowledge of the Holocaust is in decline, while related dis- and misinformation is on the rise. Simultaneously, research suggests a connection between students’ positive attitudes towards human rights and activism and their exposure to Holocaust education. Marking the anniversary of the November 1938 Pogrom, UNESCO and the Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme will organize an online discussion to examine the implications of recent surveys about Holocaust education and possible responses to the challenges and opportunities they raise.
The event will be introduced by Maher Nasser, Director of the Outreach Division of the UN Department of Global Communications and Cecilia Barbieri, Chief of the Section of Global Citizenship and Peace Education at UNESCO. It will include a presentation by Tracey Petersen, Manager, Education Outreach Section, The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme, UN Department of Global Communications and will be moderated by Karel Fracapane, Programme Specialist, Section for Global Citizenship and Peace Education, UNESCO.Register here.
