Regardless of Destiny. A Human in the Midst of Totalitarianism (based on film and interview of Centropa with «Haya Leia Detinko»)

It aims to deepen student knowledge about the Holocaust during the Second World War; to cultivate tolerance, multiculturalism and respect of other nations; to teach pupils empathy, critical and conscious attitudes towards the history of their own nation and other world nations; to promote awareness of historical heritage and to facilitate forming of an individual attitude towards it, to teach pupils to understand common human values and honor the memory of Holocaust victims.
