The project Horizontal Historical Education in Non-Discriminative Activities seeks to create a network of European institutions – POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, Kazerne Dossin and the Anne Frank House – working in the field of non-discrimination. All three institutions are museums dealing with the history of Jews. Yet we are not only places of remembrance – in striving to recall the story of the Jewish population and its persecution, we also consider our mission in a broader sense.
We believe that our unique resource – historical exhibitions – can be used for anti-discrimination education and to demonstrate a disturbing repetition of social mechanisms.
We hope that our cooperation will create common ground for anti-discrimination education in our countries and will contribute to greater engagement in the promotion and protection of equal rights in Europe.
By sharing our experience with broader audience we hope to inspire and encourage more institutions, similar to ours, to engage in building modern, open society and empowering all possible actors within this society to tackle discrimination at every level.
