Abstract:
This symposium, the fourth within Salzburg Global Seminar's Holocaust Education and Genocide Prevention series, will examine the challenges and successes in the teaching and remembrance of the Holocaust and other genocides outside of North America and Europe, focusing particularly on countries that are not members of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. The symposium will convene educators, civil society leaders, museum directors, policy makers, public officials and others working in the field of Holocaust education and genocide prevention to engage with the following issues:

Can the lessons from the Holocaust and other genocides serve as a framework to warn future generations of pending mass atrocities?

What can be learned from these events to enable preventive measures in the future?

How can the lessons of the Holocaust be brought to future generations, especially in the world beyond Europe, North America and Israel? How are the Holocaust and other genocides taught and commemorated in other areas of the globe?

Are there strategies to counteract Holocaust and genocide denial and distortion?

This symposium is supported by our partnership with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Austrian Future Fund, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, and other donors. It will further strengthen and expand the Salzburg Initiative's global network of partners, enabling them to implement activities that spread awareness about the Holocaust, Holocaust education, and genocide prevention and reach an ever-growing number of young people in ways appropriate to different cultures and countries.
