Objectives

Cultures of inclusion and empathy can be curated by providing educators with tools against intolerance-a primary objective of this project. We aim to raise awareness and teach about the Holocaust and events in Portugal in particular.

By developing and using innovative, locally relevant, video-testimony-based digital educational materials, the project seeks to convey knowledge about the past and also to help develop empathy, understanding and respect and most importantly critical thinking, as well as contribute to the actualisation of a more civically active and just society.

We will provide educators and the public with the tools to teach and learn about the Holocaust to counter hatred and create a culture of inclusion, acceptance, and respect.
