For the second year, the Institute is participating in the International Fellowship Program in Holocaust Education. Organized by the Holocaust Memorial Center with generous support from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) and the Task Force on International Holocaust Education, Remembrance and Research, the fellowship—a unique initiative in Hungary—is a yearlong program during which participants will develop their own Holocaust education project. This year’s fellows include education experts, university educators, curriculum developers, education policymakers, and journalists.
The major milestones of the fellowship are a one-week intensive seminar, individual and group consultations, a four-day study tour to Holocaust-related sites, and a closing conference. The six-day seminar (November 2-7) offered lectures and workshops led by renowned scholars from USHMM, the University of Bristol, Yad Vashem, the University of London, and the House of the Wannsee Conference; the seminar included a training session on the USC Shoah Foundation Institute’s Visual History Archive, which has been available at Central European University (CEU) since 2009.
