Conceived as a place for the transmission of knowledge, the Memorial aspires in particular to provide opportunities for connection with the younger generations. Through a partnership with the Ministry of National Education, we offer an education team which provides guided tours and thematic workshops tailored to the needs of various school settings.
The Memorial reveals this region’s historical dedication both to welcoming and sheltering those in need and to resisting the occupation. The Memorial as a whole seeks to highlight the theme of “the righteous,” presenting the events of World War II from a different angle.
Prior to a school visit to the Memorial, the education team provides preparation tools to the teachers including a bibliography, classroom activities, and so on.
The tour is suitable for different grades, depending on the school programmes. The team prioritises an active pedagogy wherein the students are the subjects of their own discovery by searching for the information themselves.
The tour of the permanent exhibit can be undertaken as a school workshop. This allows the students to delve into a precise theme, culminating in time for exchange, debate, and/or creative activity.
