The USC Shoah Foundation Institute expanded its teacher education efforts to Serbia on 5 February 2011, when Hungarian Regional Consultant Andrea Szőnyi presented at a training on the Methodology of Holocaust Education in Subotica. During a session of the daylong training organized by TUUM Association for Hungarian-speaking educators, the Institute’s Hungarian Regional Consultant presented the educational use of video testimony and shared available resources in Hungarian. She also provided an overview of the Institute’s work throughout Central and Eastern Europe, emphasizing the availability of educational resources in a variety of languages, from Croatian and Czech to Russian and Ukrainian. In addition, she outlined recent work in Hungary which will make new Hungarian-language classroom resources available for free download on the Institute’s Hungarian portal.
The participants of the program – primary and high-school educators, journalists – expressed great interest in the presentation including the introduction of the video clips of survivors from Subotica. This teacher training session marked the first time that the Institute presented our work for local educators in Serbia.
