Holocaust Education at UNESCO

Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau

On Friday 4/27 experts from around the world convened at UNESCO headquarters in Paris to discuss how and why the Holocaust has become a global point of reference for mass violence.
UNESCO's programs in Holocaust education continue to develop and strengthen on a number of fronts. The U.S. National Commission for UNESCO is currently working with Holocaust educators in the United States to promote the establishment of a Holocaust education network through UNESCO existing system of University Chairs. The Commission also recently submitted the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum as a nominee for UNESCO's Memory of the World Register.
