Houston and Galveston teachers were invited to join us at our teachers' seminar on Saturday, February 10, 2018, 8:00am-4:00 pm, for a Centropa seminar that gave them new lesson ideas, a wealth of free new resources about 20th century Central and Eastern European Jewish life for teaching social studies, history, civics, character education, foreign language (Spanish), art, photography, and filmmaking, and an opportunity to create a lesson that works for students.
On January 29, 2018, the Centropa exhibition „Lost Sephardic World of the Western Balkans“ was opened in the Croation city Dubrovnik. The exibition was opened by Edward Serotta to 50 elementary and high school teachers. Also were present Loranda Miletić from the Croatian Ministry of education, history teacher from Philosophical faculty Snježana Koren, Richelle Budd Caplan from Yad Vashem, and Tal Brutmann from Memorial de la Shoah. Edward Serotta gave a tour thorugh exibition with some ideas on how to use it in classroom.
Between 29-31 October, we organized our 6th professional development seminar for teachers in European and Israeli Jewish Schools in Krakow. 26 educators from 15 countries and 17 schools came together to discover Jewish Krakow, learn about Centropa resources, and share experiences and ideas with each other.
We thank for all the teachers to be with us, and our wonderful partner, the Galicia Jewish Museum for granting us a seminar venue.
