The meeting inaugurating Horizontal Historical Education in Non-discriminative Activities (HHEINA) project was held between 15 and 18 May 2018.

22 participants from partnership institutions (Museum of the History of Polish Jews POLIN, Anne Frank Stichting, Kazerne Dossin Memorial and Museum and Documentation Centre on Holocaust and Human Rights) and invited guests attended 4 days of workshops, Museum presentations, discussion sessions, and a tour of the Museum’s Core Exhibition.

The programme was inaugurated by the meeting with a representative of the Office of Human Rights in Poland on current situation in Poland; followed works on the catalogue of good practices, manuals for teachers and police officers.

The POLIN Museum staff presented various activities of their institution in the field of antidiscrimination: workshops for the police, for prosecutors and judges, for teachers and teenagers; partnership institutions: Anne Frank Stichting and Kazerne Dossin Memorial presented their activities shortly during meetings on police and teachers manuals together with materials they use on their antidiscrimination projects.

On the last day, administrative questions were discussed in details: accounting, ways of contacting each other, and a short presentation of IT tools that will be used to communicate and share materials during the project. 

Partners from Anne Frank Stichting and from Kazerne Dossin Memorial had the opportunity to visit the temporary exhibit on March’68 events (Estranged: March’68 and Its Aftermath) on the second day and the Core Exhibition of the POLIN Museum on the last day of the meeting.

Detailed timeline of the project implementation was prepared and all partners went back full of energy for future cooperation!
