Holocaust in the Balkans- research, education, remembarance

Youth Initiative “I Want! I can!” will this year be a partner on a project funded by the “Europe for Citizens” once again. Together with good friends from Romania and Bulgaria, and new partners from Croatia, Macedonia and Greece we will implement “Holocaust – research, education, remembrance”. Through a series of public events in Romania Serbia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Croatia and Greece, international experts will present and discuss shared European aspects of the Holocaust, Holocaust research, commemoration, teaching and learning about Holocaust, as well as current European challenges in facing intolerance, anti-Semitism, anti-Romanyism, xenophobia etc. In addition, a exhibition, and a set of educational materials and an online presentation will be produced, and presented at the events. This way the project will contribute to expand the view from local to European perspectives and further examine the Holocaust and its defining impact on the common European values in postwar Europe, including the current European challenges of intolerance, discrimination and raising anti-Semitism and anti-Romanyism.
