CPD Opportunity for Teachers

The USC Shoah Foundation is running a programme called: Auschwitz: The Past is Present.

This is a 4 day international teacher programme in Poland between 23rd and 28th January 2015. It will consist of using and sharing IWitness (the Shoah Foundation online teaching tool), meeting with survivors, visits to various sites in Warsaw, Krakow and Oswiecim and attendance inside the commemoration tent at Auschwitz-Birkenau for the 70th Anniversary of the liberation.

Applications are being invited from teachers around the world. Any teacher who attends will be given a solid grounding in using IWitness and themes of digital literacy.

The window for applying is very short as the deadline is 3rd October 2014. The process is straightforward – you need to answer some questions and do a 90 second to camera video (filmed on a camera or phone and uploaded to youtube).

About the Centre

Centre Events

The National Holocaust Centre promotes an understanding of the roots of discrimination and prejudice, and the development of ethical values, leading to a greater understanding within society. The Centre uses the history of genocide as a model of how society can break down, and emphasises how current and future generations must carefully examine and learn from these tragedies. The Centre promotes respect for human rights, equal opportunities and good citizenship, which has greater resonance than ever in our culturally diverse society.
The National Holocaust Centre provides a range of facilities for people of all backgrounds to explore the history and implications of the Holocaust. These include the Holocaust exhibition, The Journey, memorial gardens, bookshop and coffeeshop. There are also seminar and research facilities for students, teachers, scholars, professionals and many others.
