POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews and the Falstad Centre invite you to the conference „History, education, digital projects – Norwegian and Polish perspectives”.

How did the memory of the Holocaust function in postwar Norway? What challenges do educators engaged in projects aimed at fighting xenophobia face today? In the context of creating museum narratives, what are the mutual relations between on-line projects/social media and the so-called real world?

These questions will be raised during the lecture delivered by Jon Reitan of Nord University, as well as during two panel discussions attended by Polish and Norwegian experts.

The conference will provide a unique opportunity to meet people working for organisations engaged in the fields of Holocaust remembrance and human rights: the Falstad Center, the Center for Studies of the Holocaust and Religious Minorities (HL-Senteret), Jewish Museum in Oslo, European Wergeland Centre and 22 July Centre.

We invite educators, teachers, experts and representatives of self-government and NGOs from all over Poland to participate in the conference. We would like to create a platform for debate, networking and planning joint initiatives in the future.
