Teachers from Bulgaria are invited to apply to the seminar Learning from the Past, Acting for the Future, organized by The Olga Lengyel Institute for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights (TOLI). The event is addressed to teachers of any discipline who are motivated to teach about these topics, and it will take place in Blagoevgrad from 14 to 18 July 2024. The pedagogical approach used and promoted during the seminar is an interdisciplinary one, which starts from the belief that Holocaust is one of the most complex phenomena in world history and it should never be reduced to simplistic explanations. This interdisciplinary approach combines methods of Holocaust education, human rights education and intercultural education, with the aim to support teachers to empower their students to become active citizens. The seminar will develop the teachers’ competences to guide students in learning about the past, understanding the way in which the past is connected with the present, and contributing to democratic and intercultural societies in which every individual can live a life of dignity. After the seminar, the teachers will be supported to implement meaningful educational activities with their students which incorporate what they learned during the seminar and use the interdisciplinary methodology developed by TOLI. The project is implemented with assistance from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, sponsored by the Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future and supported by the German Federal Ministry of Finance. The seminar is developed by TOLI in partnership with the American University in Bulgaria, Shalom Organization and Central Israelite Religious Council of Bulgaria.
