International Teacher Training
Centropa's seminars for teachers began in the summer of 2007, when we invited nine US high school teachers to Vienna and Budapest to give us feedback on our website and Centropa's early films. Since then, our education programs have grown each year and we now conduct local workshops, national, and international seminars in the US, Europe and Israel, and each year we bring together 60-75 educators from approximately 15 countries for our annual Summer Academy in Central Europe.
Our programs are available in English, Hebrew, German, Czech, Slovak, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Polish, Lithuanian and Romanian.
Teachers use our materials to teach history, languages (German, English as a second language), language arts, ethics and values, Holocaust, 20th century Jewish history, film-making, and photography.
