The Global Prevention of Genocide: Learning from the Holocaust

The Global Prevention of Genocide: Learning from the Holocaust
Overview:
The Salzburg Global Seminar’s Holocaust Education and Genocide Prevention Initiative is an ongoing project that has been developed in cooperation with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Austrian Foreign Ministry to investigate the links between Holocaust Education and Genocide Prevention. Within the initiative, there are two programmatic strands: one focused on Holocaust Education, the other focused on Genocide Prevention.
Holocaust Education Activities

The Holocaust Education programs have been running since 2010. These have included a series of working group meetings as well as two larger international conferences that have built on the work of the working groups. In 2012, our focus has been be to examine the role of the Holocaust as a reference point for educators around the world who teach about human rights and other genocides. In particular, we are very interested in highlighting the work that is currently being undertaken by educators in countries that are not members of the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance and Research (ITF).

  Genocide Prevention Activities

Within this initiative, Genocide Prevention has always been a central point of interest and has been embedded as a conceptual theme and goal in much of our work.

In 2012, we successfully launched a multi-year program in partnership with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum focused exclusively on Genocide Prevention.

In September, 2012, The USHMM hosted the first planning meeting for this project.

Key experts were involved in this planning meeting to determine the specific case studies that this project will examine, and to shape its development.
