The Holocaust and Genocide

On October 13, 2010, Professor Yehuda Bauer gave a lecture to a live audience on the topic of “The Holocaust and Genocide” as part of the ITF Israeli Chair's Project. In attendance at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem was a group of Christian clergy from Great Britain spending time studying about the Holocaust and its implications for the future. We were also honored to be joined by a select group of 30 students, professors, and scholars in Poland, who listened and participated in a discussion after the lecture. This group included the Vice-Rector and professors at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, a professor from the Pedagogical University in Krakow, the Head of Research at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, and foreign students in the Euroculture Erasmus-Mundus Program and graduate students in European Studies at Jagiellonian University.
On November 3, 2010, a group of Hungarian educators at the Holocaust Memorial Center participated in a live videoconference with Professor Yehuda Bauer on the same topic: “The Holocaust and Genocide.” The video of this event is available on this website.

In December 2010, the Plenary of ITF decided to publish a set of documents created by the Education Working Group on teaching about the Holocaust in relation to other genocides.
