On February 15-17, strategic partners from fifteen countries convened at the annual ICHEIC (International Commission for Holocaust Era Insurance Claims) Forum held at Yad Vashem. Together with the staff from the European Department of the International School for Holocaust Studies, participants exchanged ideas and discussed the status of Holocaust education throughout Europe, new educational programs being developed at Yad Vashem and projects produced by seminar graduates. During the forum proceedings, participants and staff also visited the Paul Himmelfarb High School in Jerusalem (pictured), to meet with students preparing to take part in an educational visit to Holocaust sites in Poland.
