The Holocaust as a starting point

7th Dialogue | Spain, Portugal, Greece, Croatia and North Macedonia

The 7th edition of this teacher-training seminar organized in collaboration with the Mémorial de la Shoah and Memoshoa Portugal proposes a dual program, where lectures and workshops complement each other in order to provide participants with new tools for the development of their work in the classroom. The activity will gather 50 teachers from Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Greece and North Macedonia in Lisbon with the aim of sharing best practices in reference to the seminar topics, including the Holocaust, the Spanish Civil War and World War II, the Dictatorships of Franco and Salazar, colonialism and slavery.  Participants will also visit some memory sites such as the two memorials of the 1506 massacre at the Alfama district, the place where the Inquisition was established and where the forced conversions took place, or the Shaare Tikvah synagogue.
