Holocaust taught in four schools of Magnesia prefecture in pilot program

A pilot program teaching primary school students the history of the Holocaust started in four schools in the prefecture of Magnesia last Monday and will be completed on Thursday.

The program was organized by the University of Thessaly, the Jewish Community of Volos and “Kaleidoskopio” editions. The aim of the program is to teaching the Holocaust and the corresponding historical period through interactive activities, compatible with the mental age and the students’ level of knowledge.

“The teaching of the Jewish Holocaust has constituted an internationally acclaimed educational approach for many years. Through the teaching of the Holocaust, students come into contact with a dark period of world history and think about the causes that led to it,” the organizers said in a press release.
