PATH Preparing Ambassadors to Teach About the Holocaust

2024

The AJCF proudly participates in the PATH project, an innovative year-long program designed to empower young Europeans with the knowledge and tools to educate others about the Holocaust.

Supported by the European Commission, PATH engages youth from Austria, Germany, and Poland in a comprehensive learning journey that includes preparatory trainings, peer learning, study visits, and personal encounters with Holocaust survivors.

The program’s curriculum is both rich and diverse, offering participants the opportunity to engage in study trips to significant Holocaust sites, including:

– a pre-seminar in Linz, Austria (May 17-21, 2024)
– a special 8-day visit to Poland (July 29 – August 5, 2024)

The project includes innovative online learning sessions that cover topics such as the experiences of women during the Holocaust, the Roma genocide, and the challenges of Holocaust denial and distortion.

The PATH project emphasizes the importance of survivor testimonies in Holocaust education. By facilitating intimate meetings with survivors, the program ensures that the memories and lessons of the Holocaust are preserved and passed on. Participants are trained to become ambassadors of remembrance, equipped to share these powerful stories through social media and other platforms.

The program is a cooperation with the Austrian Service Abroad, B’nei Akiva Germany and B’nai B’rith Europe.
