Webinar: Resources for history teachers - International Holocaust Remembrance Day

We invite you to take part in the webinar which will take place on 19 January 2023 at 5 pm CET. The webinar is aimed for primary and secondary school teachers working with students aged 13–18, in particular teachers of history and civic education, as well as teachers of other subjects.

On 27. January, the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau German Nazi Concentration Camp, the International Holocaust Remembrance Day is commemorated. This day, established by the United Nations, might be an opportunity to introduce the topic of the Holocaust to your students. We encourage you to plan and conduct a lesson or a school event to commemorate the remembrance day.

During the webinar we will present a new educational kit of teaching resources about the Holocaust which help you prepare an interactive lesson for your students. Julia Mayer, a teacher from Bundesgymnasium und Bundesrealgymnasium Enns in Austria, will talk about ways to prepare students to discuss the topic of the Holocaust. During the webinar, we will explore the free resources available on the ‘Hi-story Lessons’ platform, such as the infographics, maps, various sources of information, lesson plans and animations.
