The project „Multiperspective Holocaust Remembrance in Contemporary Europe“ (short: MuRem) is funded by the European Union within the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV) and is running from 01.04.2022 – 31.03.2024.
The project is coordinated by the Berlin-based non-profit organization Minor – Projektkontor für Bildung und Forschung (Minor – project office for education and research, short: Minor).
The aim of the project is to critically reflect and strengthen multiperspectivity and interdisciplinarity in European Holocaust Education by taking into account the diversity of memory cultures and their consequences for the present. Existing approaches to Holocaust Education, which encourage a critical examination of Antisemitism, racism, and all forms of extremism in the 20th century and today, are to be explored and further developed.
In order to spread awareness on various issues and approaches in Europe and to provide a basis for exchange and mutual learning, it is important for us to have a wide variety of perspectives, both regionally and in terms of the type of institutions represented in our network.
For the cooperation in the field of diversity-oriented Holocaust Education in European immigration societies, educational institutions and multipliers of remembrance work from different European countries are to be networked with each other. Along with a Europe-wide survey and overview analysis of current challenges and new approaches to this educational work, the educational institutions will exchange ideas in two large events and several key topic workshops.
This website presents the outcomes of the MuRem project and gives insights into the practice and activities of the MuRem network. The Murem network partners defined their goals in their Network Guidelines.
