We are pleased to invite all teachers from European Jewish schools and Israel to join us for our 3-day seminar in Prague and Terezin, Czech Republic from October 15th to 17th . During the seminar we will gather  30 educators from up to 15 countries to explore  Centropa materials, work together on how to bring 20th century Jewish history and personal stories into their classrooms and form partnerships for the future.
