The joint efforts of the Slovenian government and NGOs to educate and inform the public about the fate of the Jewish population in the territory of Slovenia during the Holocaust have been well received in schools and beyond. Significant developments include visits by groups of Slovenian history teachers to Yad Vashem in 2009 and 2015, the unveiling of a memorial to Slovenian Holocaust victims - entitled ‘Forgotten Suitcase’ - in the city of Murska Sobota, and the annual symposiums at the Centre for Jewish Cultural Heritage - Synagogue in Maribor, organized in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
