FRA and Mauthausen Memorial workshop on strengthening holocaust and human rights education

The FRA and the Mauthausen Memorial will hold a joint workshop on boosting the learning experience of visitors to memorial sites through interactive holocaust and human rights education techniques.

The FRA and the Mauthausen Memorial will hold a joint workshop on boosting the learning experience of visitors to memorial sites through interactive holocaust and human rights education techniques. During the workshop, participants will test the educational methodology developed by the Mauthausen Memorial, an important Austrian holocaust historical site and a reminder of the crimes against humanity committed during the Nazi regime. They will also examine the FRA overview of educational practices at various historical sites and museums. Over the two days, the discussions will lead to ideas and criteria for further development and dissemination of interactive methods for engaging visitors at memorial sites that combine holocaust and human rights education. The workshop results will feed into a conference organised by the FRA, the European Commission and the Danish Institute for International Studies on "Remembering for the Future", which will take place on 26-27 April in Copenhagen. The conference contributes to the EU for Citizens Programme and its policy of lifelong learning.
