Centropa Western Balkans Seminar in Maribor

Our seminar "Teaching Jewish history, the Holocaust, and inter-religious tolerance in the Western Balkans" was organized for 40 educators from Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, and North Macedonia. During the seminar, participants learned about the Jewish history of Maribor and Lendava through expert lectures, walking tours and museum visits, met members of the Jewish community, watched Centropa films from the region, and listened presentations about how our veteran teachers use them in class. 

The working languages of the seminar were Slovenian and English.

Thanks for the Sinagoga Maribor Cultural Center, the Claims Conference and the Municipality of Lendava for their support.
