Teacher Training

Teaching history in an engaging and unconventional manner

What is this Teacher Training about?

Our project seeks to uncover forgotten historical places, explore memories that have not yet been told about the injustices and atrocities of the National Socialist regime and its impact on today. We will focus on Antisemitism, racism, discrimination and hatred towards the LGBTQI community in Europe in order to advance an inclusive and diverse culture of remembrance.

Meet with colleagues. Learn, discuss and design together.

We will equip you with knowledge and tools to help you deliver engaging lessons and workshops. We will show you how to tell stories, create educational materials and confront difficult topics. Throughout the training program, we will look at history from different perspectives, engaging in discussions and explorations.

Workshops. Discussions. Online and offline.*
