An answer to pressing issues
Today’s Europe is seeing a rise in nationalistic, anti-Semitic, racist and xenophobic sentiments as well as extremist ideologies. Parts of these discourses are often based on distortions of historical events connected to the Holocaust and World War II. Education is one of the most efficient ways to combat these trends. For this reason, the Memorial focuses on teachers, for their role in passing knowledge on to future generations.
