Experts partner with local activists.

On January 24 to 26, on the eve of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, educational resources offered by four organizations were presented to Czech teachers in a unique pilot event.  Experts from Yad Vashem, the Educational Center of the Jewish Museum of Prague, the Terezin Memorial, and the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, partnered with local activists to showcase the educational materials and other resources made available by their organizations.  The traveling seminar visited the cities of Ústí nad Labem, Klášterec nad Ohří, and Varnsdorf in the Czech borderlands.
