First-Ever EUROCLIO-Yad Vashem Partnership Development Seminar

On December 15-18, 2011 the European Department of the International School for Holocaust Studies of Yad Vashem coordinated together with the European Association of History Educators (EUROCLIO) a special partnership development seminar for many of its active members, representing 17 countries, such as Turkey, Iceland and Montenegro and others. This is the first time that EUROCLIO, lead by its founding president and executive director Joke van der Leeuw-Roord, organized a Holocaust-related seminar at Yad Vashem. In addition to guided tours of the educational campus and Holocaust history museum, participants worked to develop in conjunction with European Department staff possible models of future cooperation focusing on various interdisciplinary subjects related to the challenges of teaching about the Shoah.
