Those who are alive receive a mandate from those who are silent forever. They can fulfil their duties only by trying to reconstruct precisely things as they were, and by wresting the past from fictions and legends.
Czesław Miłosz, excerpt from his Nobel acceptance speech, 08.12.1980
The Toledo Guiding Principles on Teaching about Religions and Beliefs in Public Schools were written to facilitate teaching about religions and beliefs in order to promote tolerance and understanding. The Principles are meant to assist in the study of diversity. They include chapters on the human rights frameworks and teaching about religions and beliefs, preparing curricula, teacher education and respecting rights throughout the learning process. The Principles were published by the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) in 2007. They are a direct result of a meeting of a panel of experts in March 2007 in Toledo, Spain.
