Online Event MuRem Project | Multiperspective Approaches in Holocaust Remembrance
Insights from the Practice of European Holocaust Education and Exhibitions
Online | February 7th, 3-5 pm (CET) | Registration deadline: 05.02.2023
How can the Holocaust be exhibited and educated alongside other historical and contemporary human rights and discrimination topics? What are the similarities in the challenges and approaches in different European contexts, and how do they differ? These questionss will be discussed at this online event on February 7th, 3-5 pm (CET).
The event is part of the project "Multi-Perspective Holocaust Remembrance in Contemporary Europe" (MuRem). The goal is to build a network and strengthen multiperspectivity and interdisciplinarity in European Holocaust Education by taking into account the diversity of memory cultures and their consequences for the present.
Representatives of Holocaust Education institutions in Poland, France, Belgium and Norway will give insights into their practical experiences with multiperspectivity. In dialogue with Hubert Strouk (Mémorial de la Shoah), Katarzyna Kulińska (POLIN museum) will explain, how the Holocaust Education at POLIN museum touches the contemporary refugee situation. Isabelle Diependaele (Kazerne Dossin) will address the question of multiperspectivity from the exhibition perspective in dialogue with Elise Grimsrud Christensen (Norwegian Center for Holocaust and Minority Studies). They will talk about their experiences with special exhibitions on human rights and discrimination alongside main exhibitions on the Holocaust.
The organisers will present and launch a European survey on multiperspectivity in Holocaust education. The goal of the survey is to gain an insight into different approaches to addressing the various current challenges of Holocaust remembrance and education in Europe. The survey is also supposed to give a better idea of what multiperspectivity could mean in different contexts and whether and how this approach is implemented.
The digital event is open to the public.
This event takes place as part of the MuReM project.
The project is funded by the European Union within the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV).
