International Seminar 2017 for Teachers as well as Trainees
Auschwitz in the Classroom

Maximilian-Kolbe-Werk organizes international advanced vocational training seminars for teachers and trainees since 2013. The five-day seminar in February takes place in Auschwitz under the title “Auschwitz in the Classroom”.

The project’s objective is to bring teachers and trainees closer to the historic location Auschwitz and through encounters with camp and ghetto survivors, inspire learning in school about the  commemoration of  memory. Furthermore, the project gathers ideas for innovative lessons around the subject of National-Socialism and Holocaust as well as exchanges in an international context.

Target group: Teachers of different subjects (e.g. history, social sciences, politics, German, ethics & religion) from Germany, Poland and other European countries and also trainees.
