“Our commitment must be to remember the victims who perished, respect the survivors still with us, and reaffirm humanity's common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance is pleased to announce the third volume in its publication series: "Research in Teaching and Learning about the Holocaust: A Dialogue Beyond Borders".
How is the Holocaust taught in schools? How do students make sense of this challenging subject? How are people affected by visits to Holocaust memorial sites? Empirical research on teaching and learning about the Holocaust that tackles these and other questions has grown rapidly over the past fifteen years, a period marked by the professionalization and expansion of the field. Order the book.
In 2013, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance decided to carry out a study to establish a picture of this emerging field of research. A multilingual expert team, mandated to collect and review research in fifteen languages, identified nearly 400 studies resulting in more than 600 publications. The multilingual focus of the project enables cross-cultural analyses and the transfer of knowledge between various regions and countries. This innovative transnational, trans-lingual study carries the field beyond anecdotal reflections and moral arguments and reflects IHRA’s core mission: to strengthen and advance teaching and learning about the Holocaust worldwide.
The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance united governments and experts to strenghten and advance Holocaust edcuaiton, research and remembrance and to uphold the commitments to the 2000 Stockholm Declaration.
