International Programs

The Memorial Library is pleased to announce that it is expanding its reach to include programming abroad. We are currently developing programs for teachers in Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria. Feasibility research is carried out in other European countries for potential future programs.



The activities of the Memorial Library in Romania started with a seminar on Holocaust education for school superintendents over four years ago. The focus was expanded to create a seminar for teachers and a national contest for high school and middle school students.

The seminar offers learning opportunities about teaching methods, curricular and extra-curricular activities and provides teachers with the opportunity to share their views and needs regarding teaching about the Holocaust. Read more
