To close out our US State Department grant, we spent an afternoon with nearly 90 teachers and students from schools all over Poland, and we awarded prizes for best videos.
In February Centropa's traveling exhibition "Stories from a family album" was in Sopron at the Eötvös József Evangelical High School. Our partner teachers at the school - Bernadett Csehi, Márta Újvári, Ákos Bánfi, and Zoltán Telekes - organized an exhibition opening which was covered by the local media, and they trained some of their students to be tour guides. We would like to thank to everyone at the Eötvös József Evangelical School for hosting it, especially to Bernadett Csehi who took the lead in organizing all of this. Congratulations to all of you!
On Feb 17-18, Centropa will hold its annual US West Coast seminar for educators from public and Jewish high schools.
The 2-day seminar will take place at the San Diego Jewish Academy. For more information, contact Dr. Lauren Granite: firstname.lastname@example.org
On Feb 10-11, 2013, Centropa is inviting 35 educators from European Jewish schools to a skill-building seminar in Berlin. For more information, contact our Jewish school coordinator, Marcell Kenesei: email@example.com
9th grade students from Tel Mond high school and their teacher Eti Gal welcome Devorah Preiss and Centropa's EU Educational director Fabian Ruehle to talk about their exhibition on Polish Jewry, which they designed based upon Centropa's Polish exhibition.
