Kick-off-Workshop: Multiperspective Holocaust Remembrance in Contemporary Europe

November 11, 2022

The aim of the project “Multi-Perspective Holocaust Remembrance in Contemporary Europe” (short: MuRem) 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. A special focus lays on the integration of narratives on flight and migration. Along with a Europe-wide survey and overview analysis of current challenges and new approaches to this educational work, the educational institutions exchange ideas in two large events and several key topic workshops. The goal is the joint development and testing of multi-perspective methods and tools for a diversity-oriented and interdisciplinary Holocaust education.

The event started with a public evening event about “Experiences of Refugeedom in Past and Present. Perspectives from six cities of refuge”  with readings, short film presentations from the We Refugees Archive and discussions on how to tell the (hi)stories of forced migration.

On November 11, 2022 we got to know each other‘s perspectives and experiences with multiperspectivity in European Holocaust Education by sharing experiences from the practice, by looking at case studies of the present network partners. Furthermore, we discussed the European-wide survey on this topic that we plan to disseminate from the beginning of 2023 onwards.
