“Protecting Memory” project – an advanced seminar in Zhytomyr

On 27-28 of October 2018 Ukrainian Center for Holocaust Studies held an advanced educational and methodological seminar for teachers and pupils within the “Protecting Memory” project in Zhytomyr. During a three-day seminar teachers and students attended lectures on the Holocaust history, discrimination and prejudice, culture and traditions of Jews in Ukraine. The participants watched and discussed films, worked with historical sources, and learned to perform public presentations. They also visited sites of Jewish history in Zhytomyr and surroundings and continued development of their own projects.
The project “Protecting Memory” in Ukraine has started in 2010. It aims to engage teachers and pupils into independent learning of local history parallel to creation of the new memorial sites. In the framework of the project teachers together with pupils create their own mini-projects based on the history of their localities. This year the project continued in Vinnytsia and Zhytomyr regions.
