Festival of Tolerance is a cultural manifestation that advocates multicultural dialogue through all its segments (film program, Educational mornings, thematic exhibitions, International Talent Workshop, literary evenings, music program), and educates about the Holocaust, tolerance and shared values considering them to be the foundation for a happy coexistence in ethnically and religiously different environments. All of the segments are of highly educational value.Our organization is committed to the subject of the Holocaust and tolerance. It is aimed at all generations, especially school children, through various lectures, workshops and thematic exhibitions. Its main goal is to educate about the Holocaust and to promote tolerance and understanding, locally and regionally. Festival of Tolerance grew from Zagreb Jewish Film Festival.

goals

The Association´s overall objective is to enhance capacity of civil society in the process of implementation of non-discrimination and equal opportunities policy and increase efforts in fight against discrimination, exclusion and prejudice. The integration of minorities through communal, educational and social programs, which may help them express their ethnic identity, is also one of the practical aims of the Project. Specific objectives of the Project (in bullet points) and demonstrated need for the project are: • to educate about the Holocaust and to promote tolerance and understanding, to encourage multicultural surrounding of various cultures within all age groups and to emphasize the injustice, so that the period from 1933 to 1945, as well as any other similar period in European and world history that has resembled it, would never happen again (in the world of growing right-wing extremism, our goal is to point out the dangers that can come out of these tendencies and to develop the social awareness about the need to nourish democratic values, respect for all individuals, acceptance of different opinions and ways of life). • to grow stronger as a public platform for the education about the Holocaust. • to enrich the cultural offer by thematic art exhibitions and educational content closely related to the Festival, in Zagreb and Rijeka/Croatia and Sarajevo/Bosnia and Herzegovina • to encourage voluntary work and to promote and develop solidarity among generations.

Das Zeitgeschichtliche Forum Leipzig ist ein Ort lebendigen Erinnerns. Das Ausstellungs-, Dokumentations- und Informationszentrum widmet sich der Geschichte von Teilung und Einheit, Diktatur und Widerstand in der Sowjetischen Besatzungszone und der DDR. Dazu gehört besonders die Geschichte des Repressionsapparats der SED, des widerständigen Verhaltens und der friedlichen Revolution von 1989. Zentraler Aspekt ist die Würdigung der Zivilcourage unter den Bedingungen der Diktatur. Die Dauerausstellung zeigt das SED-Regime zwischen Verführung und Gewalt, Zustimmung und Unterdrückung. Anschaulich werden politische, wirtschaftliche, kulturelle und alltagsgeschichtliche Zusammenhänge präsentiert. Rund 3200 Exponate – Gegenstände, Dokumente, Fotos und Medien – sind in einem besucherorientierten Ausstellungskonzept in Szene gesetzt und regen zur näheren Beschäftigung mit der Geschichte Deutschlands sowohl in der Zeit der Teilung als auch seit der Wiedervereinigung an. Wechselausstellungen bieten Gelegenheit zur Vertiefung einzelner Themen. Das moderne und besucherfreundliche Museum in der Leipziger Innenstadt bietet ein Forum für die engagierte Auseinandersetzung mit der deutschen Geschichte und Gegenwart. Es gibt Raum für eine Begegnung der Generationen und trägt dazu bei, die Erfahrungen, Belastungen und Leistungen der Menschen in Ost- und Westdeutschland gegenseitig verständlich zu machen.

The Jewish Historical Institute focuses entirely on the study of the history and culture of Polish Jews. It is the largest depository of Jewish-related archival documents, books, journals, ritual and art objects. The preservation of collections that document ten centuries of Jewish experience in Poland allows for research and education to be carried on. We believe that education makes people aware of the history that Poles and Jews shared and helps to overcome stereotypes.
