The History of Humanity at the Crossroads

Livia Ghiurcuta, Nicoleta Blaj


The main activity organized in the framework of this project was a two-day symposium titled History Beyond Words, when students from a high school in Oradea had the opportunity to present the results of their research on the Jewish heritage in Oradea, the life of Jews in Romania, the Holocaust in Romania and in Europe. Secondary school students presented a sketch titled A School for All, talking about the importance of an inclusive educational environment. The project was done in collaboration with Tikvah Association, which is a non-profit organization in Oradea promoting the study and commemoration of the Holocaust and the promotion on Human Rights. A representative of the Tikvah Association accompanied the students in a visit at the Children’s Memorial in Oradea, a statue of Eva Heyman placed in a public park in the city. The students also visited the Museum of Jewish History in Oradea and conducted research in the County Library.
