Official Launch statement
After months of voluntary work and dedication of our partners, we are delighted to officially
announce the start of our new project Informal Participatory Education on Holocaust (IPEH).
Human Rights Institute in partnership with IBB and UNITED is a successful applicant for project support from the German Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (Stiftung EVZ) with funds provided by the Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF).
Informal Participatory Education on Holocaust (IPEH) project aims to involve young people in
innovative and creative ways of remembrance of the Holocaust (including Sinti/Roma and LGBT victims) focused on local aspects and stories of victims, bringing personalised and participatory learning experience on platforms they prefer, thus making young people agents of change in their environments by tapping the potential of the online sphere and bringing education activities to larger target audiences.
The primary target group are youngsters aged 14 -19 in Hungary and Slovakia, countries with a history of complicity in the Holocaust and with rising support for neonazi parties. Secondary target groups are Germans and Europeans of the same age group that are largely uninformed about the victims and consequences of the NS regime policies and actions in these countries.
As a result of the project activities young people will not only actively learn but creatively participate in researching and imagining lives of the victims. Through user generated content on social media they will act also as multipliers among their peers and as a consequence, promote a culture of non-tolerance towards antisemitism, antigypsyism, homophobia, Holocaust denialism and historical revisionism amongst young people.
*The project is funded by the Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (EVZ) and the Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF) as part of the Education Agenda NS-Injustice.
