Study-Trip "Teaching the Holocaust History - Perspectives and Approaches", Berlin, Wannsee
Ukrainian Center for Holocaust Studies in cooperation with Educational and Memorial Center "House of the Wannsee Conference" and with support from the German Embassy in Ukraine have held on 18-23 August 2013 in Berlin their annual educational seminar on history of WWII and the Holocaust in Europe.
This is the third joint project of the mentioned organizations. However, if the first two study-trips were aimed at teachers of history and humanities, this year's participants were researchers, history students and postgraduate students dealing with the related topics of research. The programme has been changed accordingly. For example, this time the participants visited the Archive of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and had a chance to familiarize with some of the documents there.
