A project for Lithuanian schools to commemorate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Online

As the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, January 27, approaches, Lithuanian schools are invited to participate in the project "About What Was Lost".

Since 2011, the Secretariat of the International Commission, together with Tolerance Education Centers, has organized artistic conferences to commemorate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. This year, when the educational process is arranged remotely in an emergency situation, Lithuanian educational institutions are invited to participate in the project "About what was lost".

The project consists of 2 stages; 

  • In the first stage, teachers are encouraged to organize lessons, film reviews about Jews in Lithuania and Europe in the past, and tell students about the massacres that began during the Nazi occupation and the crimes against humanity.
  • The second stage of the project is for students: students are invited to paint or create posters in their own original way to commemorate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27. The students' posters will be evaluated by a commission consisting of art, history teachers, and other specialists. The posters rated best by the commission will be presented on the International Commission's website and introduced on the FB account of the Polish Embassy in Vilnius.

On January 27, teachers and students are invited to join the #We Remember campaign organized by the World Jewish Congress. The project is organized by the Secretariat of the International Commission for the Evaluation of the Crimes of the Nazi and Soviet Occupation Regimes in Lithuania. The project's partner is the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Vilnius.
