Event: Holocaust Education in Schools in the 21st Century: Current Practices, Potentials and Ways Forward
12 February 2016

Holocaust Education in Schools in the 21st Century: Current Practices, Potentials and Ways Forward
 
Loughborough University, UK; National Holocaust Centre and Museum, UK: 7-8 July 2016
 
This conference seeks to establish the potentials of Holocaust education in relation to primary school children. Whilst our knowledge of the practice of Holocaust education has made impressive strides, most studies are based on teaching children from ages 11 onwards (for example, secondary school children in the UK). Learning at primary age in general and the engagement with the Holocaust in particular,
remain comparatively unexplored. Whilst there is a rapidly growing number of Holocaust exhibitions and memorial sites worldwide, provisions for primary school children are far and between.
