We invite you to a seminar on Jewish History, Holocaust, Civil Society, Digital Story Telling and International Partnerships Rivne | 5th —7th November 2015

The project Trans.History includes cross-sectoral training opportunities for teachers and multipliers of formal and non-formal education in Ukraine dealing with the topic of Ukrainian history. Furthermore, the program aims to involve young people by offering a video-competition that motivates them to work with the history of their country. It also encourages critical thinking about the history as well as a balanced culture of remembrance.

The project pursues the following objectives:
1) training of educators through formal and non-formal education networks and social media
2) promoting the interest and critical discussion of Ukrainian history in the 20th century with a special focus on the Jewish history, Holocaust and recent history
3) promotion of active civil society participation through the implementation of specific projects in schools; nationwide and cross-border exchange among young people.

Through the involvement of other partners from educational institutions and museums in Austria, Germany, Poland and the USA, the Ukrainian participants get the opportunity to enter into a lively exchange, which is important in the current times of crisis. By cross-sectoral work with schools on the one hand and NGOs on the other, democratic structures within Ukraine are promoted and positive synergies are created that contribute to the strengthening of civil society in Ukraine.
