Local partner - EUROM: Current Debates And Challenges On Genocide Education: A Triangular View
4:00pm - 5:00pm
Session Chair: David González, European Observatory on Memories, Spain
The educational transmission of genocide is one of the main challenges faced by organizations dedicated to the memory of genocide. It is important to know what to transmit, how to do it, and what specific audiences to target. The memory places that represent events as traumatic as genocide have an enormous evocative power, which allows them to have a huge range of didactic resources destined to the memorial transmission of the genocide.
The following panel will present the cases of three institutions that work on initiatives that link heritage, education and genocide, such as the Hrant Drink Foundation in Istanbul, the Mémorial de la Shoah in Paris and the Historical Museum of Bosnia Herzegovina in Sarajevo. Therefore, it is intended to reflect on the ways to face education on genocide in the Armenian, Jewish and Bosnian cases, and how the use of didactic tools related to heritage can help achieving this memorial transmission through education.
