Title: Memory, Agency and the Act of Civic Responsibility. Developing activating methods in Holocaust Education through arts, space and media
Summary
The MemAct! evaluates, develops and implements best practices participatory methods to learn about the Holocaust. They aim to enable communities to connect the past with current societal issues e.g. new anti-Semitism, anti-migrant Racism and other forms of exclusion. Recent disturbing events such as the Halle synagogue shooting remind us on the immediate need of a turn towards a civic education approach in Holocaust education. To head in this direction, MemAct! brings together educators, researchers and activists from different fields of Holocaust learning, civic education and community work against racism and anti-Semitism. The partners represent diverse European contexts and will collaborate in trans-disciplinary work packages. Visiting each other and evaluating best practice examples, the MemAct! team will create participatory models and concepts of education and communication. In the MemAct! educational models to be developed, citizens with diverse backgrounds will be encouraged to define their own meaningful questions on the Nazi past and connect them with challenges of our current Europe to approach the ethics of civic responsibility. In addition, educators will learn from the way various participating communities, youth, elderly people, migrants and disadvantaged people perceive history. Through these shared processes, MemAct! will also develop models of collaboration between Holocaust education and anti-racist community work.Results (1) Implementation of new methods (2) Open Access Online Tool-box ( method design and guide-lines).
