Graduate Network Seminars

Our network of European graduates committed to promoting Holocaust education continues to expand. The Department is designing special follow-up professional development programming for our graduates across Europe. Yad Vashem staff often organize seminars at Holocaust-related authentic memorial sites, and provide study tours as well as new educational resources. Here you can find more information about our follow-up seminars in Europe and updates about upcoming programs.

"The seminar was really interesting and very well prepared. The topics of presentations were a good motivation for teachers. All memorial sites were very interesting and good for a visit with students."

"Thank you for organizing a beautiful educational seminar for us teachers. I gained a lot from participating, learned new facts, methods and competences, and I shared valuable experiences with my colleagues. I feel more confident to teach about the Holocaust after this seminar."

"I had a great time here at Holocaust Centre at Skopje, the working team is great and very passionate about their work and mission they do. The Art exhibition really moved me, hope will return one day to a similar seminar, and workshop, but for more days, because we have so much to say and to learn from each other."

"I disliked the fact that there wasn't air-condition in the center of Holocaust, and particularly, in the bus there was not any fresh air. Otherwise, excellent seminar."

"More time for discussions, local field trips, and using teachers' materials, collecting their presentations and sharing."

"I think in the future the travel expenses for the participants should be paid."

"Thank you for organizing a beautiful educational seminar for us teachers. I gained a lot from participating, learned new facts, methods and competences, and I shared valuable experiences with my colleagues. I feel more confident to teach about the Holocaust after this seminar."

"[Chava's] presentation on using film in teaching was marvelous and very inspiring."

"I feel so good here, I feel among friends, and nobody complains, 'Why do you do this, are you a Jew?'"

"It is much easier to teach about the Jews in the Jasenovac camp than about the Serbians, since the blood of the students starts to boil while talking about the Serbians. This is not the case with the Jews, since they don't know them."

"It was a pleasure for me to take part in this seminar. All the activities were really interesting. All the lectures were enriching and useful."

"For me this was a very useful seminar for several reasons. It has been some years since I last had a chance to learn about Jewish life before World War II, so I really appreciated it. I've never been to Poland in this context. Majdanek and Belzec are the first camps I have visited. I am really impressed by the work of Brama Grodzka. For me, their professionalism and passion gave me a lot of inspiration to do more and higher quality in my own everyday work. I thank all the organizers – your work is very important".

"I'm very grateful for having been given this opportunity to attend this seminar. It was very interesting to meet and speak to other participants from other countries – I thought the mix of people was really successful and our discussions very interesting".

"The seminar was inspiring and challenging. It has helped me focus on the use of sites and why we should use such resources as educators. The international perspective was especially useful and reinforced the point that remembrance is cultural as well as personal and offers challenges. The NN Theatre was an excellent venue in its own resources and as a base for experiencing the memorial sites. Graduate seminars to me are valuable in expanding what Yad Vashem's training had already established: educators who are skilled, informed and motivated to make a difference in Holocaust education."

"The seminar was really interesting and very well prepared. The topics of presentations were a good motivation for teachers. All memorial sites were very interesting and good for a visit with students. The seminar has encouraged me for further work with my students and has enriched my knowledge about the Holocaust. It was very interesting to compare the past in Lublin with the present situation. I was impressed by all sites we had seen."

Congratulations on the perfect organization and implementation of this weekend seminar. It was extremely enriching for me and the other participants. I am happy that the culture of remembrance is brought to the next generations by such a young and dedicated team!

Thanks for the outstanding organization which contributed a lot to our wellbeing. And still, I felt a great many disturbing emotions, and all the atrocities that took place in this wonderful castle will keep my mind busy for a long time.

Speaking as a Holocaust educator who knows what it's like to be isolated by mainstream society and having to defend the theme, I found this seminar to be a source of strength. The in-depth information was supplemented by real hands-on work with other colleagues. The mix of museum pedagogues and school educators was especially fruitful and continues to be so because we came away highly motivated to maintain the network we established. Thanks to the excellent organization by C. Dorner and D. Hartmann, there was valuable pre -seminar and post-seminar information. I hope that many colleagues will be able to take advantage of this experience.
