Centropa and ESJF are pleased to announce our upcoming teacher training seminar in Krakow, on August 23-24, 2020.

Together with our local partner, Galicia Jewish Museum (GJM), we will bring together up to 30 educators from all over Poland. This seminar will give participants the opportunity to learn from European academic experts and practitioners in the fields of Jewish heritage, Jewish cemetery research, and Jewish history education.

During our training seminar we will explore Polish Jewish history, take a closer look at local Jewish cemeteries, and work with Centropa‘s education programme on Central Europe´s Jewish history. Participants will work in small groups, learning how to use these tools in class and in extracurricular work. Led by Centropa, ESJF, and MSNP staff as well as renowned historians, participants will engage in on-site workshops at Jewish cemeteries.

We would like to thank the European Commission for making this seminar possible.
