TOLI is pleased to announce that it is programming includes seminars in Europe, including programs for teachers in Romania, Bulgaria, Austria and Greece. Feasibility research is being carried out in other European countries for potential future programs.



The program in Romania started with a seminar on Holocaust education for school superintendents, and in time the focus was expanded to create a seminar for teachers and a national contest for high school and middle school students.
