CIRel: Education of the culture of remembrance - the study of the Holocaust in Serbia

Centre for Religious Studies of the Belgrade Open School held educational program  “Education of the culture of remembrance - the study of the Holocaust in Serbia” from 13th until 16th of May 2014, in cooperation with Konrad Adenauer Foundation, International School for Holocaust Studies Yad Vashem and Jasenovac Committee of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

The program that lasted 4 days, gathered 35 participants (current as well as future lecturers), with the goal to fulfil the lack of formal educational knowledge on Holocaust in Serbia, to put Holocaust in the position of a public question, interpreted by the experts and the survivors, and to, through the affirmation of the culture of remembrance, contribute to the development of the culture of peace.

Participants gained relevant knowledge about Holocaust through the lectures of eminent lecturers from Yad Vashem and local experts, as well as through workshops and visits to scaffolds and  memorial sites with the expert, meetings with the survivors etc. Program participants were encouraged to use the gained knowledge in their academic and educational areas.
