Education | The Remediation of the Holocaust Narratives in the History Classroom


Emma Abbate has a PhD from the Università Federico II di Napoli and is a CLIL teachers trainer at the Università L'Orientale di Napoli and a teacher at Liceo Scientifico Armando Diaz Caserta.

She participated in the EHRI workshop Challenges in Presenting Holocaust Resources in the Digital Age, that took place at Yad Vashem in November 2022, and has written a blogpost about her contribution that gives insight in modern Holocaust education.

In Holocaust education, the need for a student-centered approach and the increasingly active role of the learners acting more as co-creators of contents than simple interlocutors, call for a creative but ethically respectful remediation of primary sources employed in classrooms. This post describes some digital learning experiences aimed at renewing students’ agency in Shoah remembrance, it is the summary of my contribution to the EHRI workshop "Challenging in presenting Holocaust resources in the Digital Age" in Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, in November 2022.

For Holocaust Remembrance Day: Listen to the EHRI Podcast "For the Living and the Dead"


To commemorate the victims of the Holocaust, you could listen to one of the six episodes of the EHRI podcast series For the Living and the Dead. Traces of the Holocaust. They all tell a very personal story of a Holocaust victim, while a researcher gives a wider perspective.

In each episode of For the Living and the Dead, a Holocaust researcher talks about an object, now often in a museum or archive, that tells a personal story about the Holocaust. The first season of the EHRI podcast features a teddy bear, mica-flakes, a postcard, gramophone discs, a magazine cover and a typewriter. The unique stories come from all over Europe – the Holocaust being a continent-wide phenomenon – ranging from Belgium to Ukraine, from Romania to Italy.
