Teaching Jewish heritage in your class. Using Jewish cemeteries in education. Kraków 2020

Teaching Jewish heritage in your class. Using Jewish cemeteries in education. Kraków 2020

Centropa and ESJF (European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative) in cooperation with the Galicja Jewish Museum organized a joint two-day training seminar for 30 teachers from Poland which took place from August 23-24, 2020 in Kraków. 

The training seminar allowed participants to learn about Jewish cultural heritage in Poland from renowned experts. Furthermore, the participants were introduced to Centropa‘s educational tools, examined Polish-Jewish history in Kraków, took a closer look at the local Jewish cemetery and synagogue, and carried out small-group work sessions on how to develop lesson plans and projects for both classroom and extracurricular use.

We want to thank our supporters at the European Commission and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation for making this seminar possible.
