The International School for Holocaust Studies
What’s new in the Department for International Seminars
In December the Department for International Seminars hosted the first educational seminar for educators coming from various geographical areas throughout India. This seminar was the initiative of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs and our embassy in New Delhi. It was our first attempt to bring Holocaust education to a group of educators from India. The participants were high school teachers, principals and lecturers at different universities.
The Department will be hosting the following seminars for educators in January:
- A seminar for educators from Australia;
- A seminar for educators from New Zealand;
- A seminar for educators from South America.
The seminar for educators from New Zealand is also a first time seminar for the school. This was the initiative of the MFA and the Holocaust Center in Wellington, NZ. 23 educators from all over NZ will participate in a 16-day educational seminar and prepare themselves to teach the Holocaust in their high schools.
