Wednesday, the 20th of April 2016, the fourth edition of the Students' Film Festival (FFEH4) took place at the National College "Iulia Hasdeu" as one of the activities during Alternative Week. During this edition of the film festival, 97 film entries have been submitted by students from classes X A, X C, XI A and XI E. The theme of the short films creaed by the students was "My family’s history".
In January 2016, the students of class XI E from the National College "Iulia Hasdeu" in Lugoj took part in the Box of Knowledge project. This project was implemented with the occasion of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Within this project, the students of class XI E had to create a cardboard box inside of which they had to glue pictures taken from the Auschwitz Album, the inner part of the lid containing the words "International Holocaust Remembrance Day". The outer part of the lid had "the 27 of January" written on it.
Between 12 to 13 November 2015, National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust from Romania and the US Embassy Bucharest organized, in Bucharest, the roundtable ”After 10 years. Keeping the memory alive”. At this meeting, held under the patronage of the Romanian Government, participated twenty teachers from across the country.

Hello, my dear CSA friends,
Today is September 23 - Holocaust Memorial day in Lithuania. I've had an opportunity to present Centropa's workshop in Poland to the school community and to share my newly gained knowledge about the old, rich and sad history of Lithuanian Jewry.
The following 2 slides I prepared during the Centropa teacher seminar in Berlin in spring 2015 when asked to explain to my fellow teachers what I get out of the Centropa seminars .
Every student has to choose a poet who lived the Shoa and wrote about it. He has to learn his biography and then go to the Centropa website to look for a biografy of a " common person " who had been living in the same place during the same period . Studying those 2 biografies the student should imagine those two living in the same social and cultural environment and like this the student will get a different and broader understanding about the time and place which shaped the poet and the " common person " .
On 07.04.2015 took place the third edition of the Film Festival of Students from Hasdeu (FF3H).
