Teaching the Legacy: e-Newsletter for Holocaust Educators
(January, 2008)


During January and February, two teacher-training seminars will take place for some 75 educators from Spanish-speaking countries, including: Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Brazil, Mexico, Panama, Columbia, Venezuela, and Spain. The stated aim is to train these educators to teach the Holocaust in Jewish and state schools.

In February, a teacher-training seminar will take place in Argentina, attended by some 400 teachers and 150 youth group leaders. This seminar is part of BAMA, a special cooperative project with the Jewish Agency, with the support of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

The Spanish Desk is also completing five educational units for kindergarten ages through high school.
