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.
Dear teachers from European and Israeli Jewish schools,
we are happy to invite you to our upcoming professional development seminar, taking place between 29-31 October in Krakow, Poland.
Similarly to last years, the seminar will be a sparkling environment where 30 educators from all over Europe and Israel come together to learn about Centropa and our materials - with a special focus on Poland - learn about the programs and projects we have to offer for this year, and brainstorm together about new ideas.
In the 2016/2017 school year, we announced the CJN video competition for the second time. Students from Jewish schools in Europe, US and Israel could compete with their short films in 4 categories: Virtual Jewish Cookbook, Family History, Virtual Walking Tour and My Community.
On the 26th of May, Centropa Hungary held a grand final event in the Holocaust Memorial Center of Budapest, where more than 300 students and teachers came together to receive an award for their projects and work in the 2016/17 school year. We awarded the participants of the Visegrád video competition, the Common Ground Educational Project, and those who hosted our Hungarian exhibitions and created lesson plans for the Centropa webpage.
With the support of the Visegrád Fund, Centropa organized a video competition for the Visegrád countries for the first time. Students of Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic were invited to create short films about their town’s Jewish history and culture. Almost 40 videos were submitted to the competition, which were evaluated by an international jury. The results were announced on our annual Town Hall meeting in Budapest on the 26th of May.
