Teaching 20th century multicultural Greek history through Jewish family stories, promoting interreligious tolerance in the Balkans

Educational activities are strictly regulated by the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, and the ESJF developed its educational work in accordance with their requirements.

We partnered with the NGO Centropa, whose work focuses on teaching 20th century Jewish history. In cooperation with the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece (KIS), the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki (JCT), and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS), under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, Centropa and ESJF are organising a teacher training seminar in Thessaloniki in December 2019. The event will bring together 37 educators to discuss and share their experiences of teaching 20th century Jewish history.

Secondary school activities will follow. For more details, please check back later.
