What makes Centropa different? Our approach to 20th century history and Holocaust education:

  • teachers should teach how Jews lived, not only how they died—and we give you the resources to do so;

  • students relate to our stories because they get to know survivors from their childhood through old age, and connect to their stories of growing up, overcoming hardship, and resilience;

  • our pedagogy: no boxed curriculum - you decide how our resources work for you.

Common Ground Seminar

Location: Budapest, Hungary

Date: September 25-27, 2020

For Hungarian teachers and educators!

 

One of the main challenges of the Hungarian educational system is natural segregation, which means that most students finish school without ever meeting peers who come from a different ethnic, religious, or socio-economic background. Common Ground Educational Program aims to tackle this problem by providing opportunities for students to meet with peers from different backgrounds, learn from each other, cooperate, and work together. In its framework, Roma and non-Roma, Jewish and non-Jewish, disadvantaged and privileged students create projects as equal partners, based on the methods of intercultural pedagogy. 

 

The program starts with a seminar in Budapest for teachers to meet, network and find partners to create projects with. 

 

Interested in joining us in Budapest? Apply before August 14, 2020!
