The National Symposium The Memory of the Holocaust – Education for Tolerance

Gianina-Cristina Cocuz


The first edition of the symposium titled The Memory of the Holocaust – Education for Tolerance brought together over 150 students and 35 teachers from all over the country. The symposium had two sections – one for students and one for teachers. Students from all over the country submitted presentations, posters, drawings and collages. Teachers submitted papers on the topic of Holocaust, descriptions of projects and activities that they organized with students during school classes or as extra-curricular activities. All participants received diplomas and an electronic magazine containing all submitted works was published. Two panels with information about the Holocaust were printed and are permanently exhibited in the school.
