The project aims to support Holocaust education in Polish schools. The Holocaust being taught in the context of combating racism and anti-Semitism is closely related to teaching tolerance, overcoming stereotypes and prejudice. Thus, Holocaust education is an opportunity to discuss fundamental democratic values. Selection of sources on the Holocaust, compiled by experts with a view to being used in the teaching process, is of paramount importance, both for the teaching process itself, as well as for combating xenophobia and promotion of acceptance in a multi-cultural worldview. Activities within the project include: publication of a Selection of Sources for Holocaust education, preparation of methodological guidelines and lesson plans together with syllabus with source analysis for teachers, organization of workshops for teachers and educators.
