To mark the launch of a new IWitness website on addressing antisemitism through education, UNESCO and USC Shoah Foundation are organizing a virtual panel discussion on the topic of “How to counter antisemitism: the role of educators and education.”

Education is essential to address antisemitism and other forms of prejudice. For education to fulfil its role in combating antisemitism and other forms of intolerance and discrimination, schools and teachers require specific support, guidance and training on raising young people’s awareness of the nature of antisemitism and its effect, in building their resilience to prejudice and the toxic ideologies that drive discrimination and hatred.

To address this need, a new USC Shoah Foundation IWitness site offers educational resources, witness testimonies and practical tools to build resilience to antisemitism and learn about its contemporary manifestations, origins, evolution and history, including the history of the Holocaust.

The site is based on UNESCO and the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) guidelines for policymakers on Addressing Anti-Semitism Through Education, and a set of four framework curricula for trainers of primary education teachers, secondary education teachers, vocational education teachers, and school directors.
