Since the establishment of the Ghetto Fighters' House in 1949, the museum has been dedicated to preserving Holocaust Remembrance, teaching its lessons and educating generations of young men and women to be aware of the human characteristics and social processes that allowed the Holocaust to take place. The Center for Humanistic Education, which has worked within the museum since 1995, continues this educational-value-based line: learning the universal meaning of the Holocaust and gaining insight from history in order to nurture democratic values and humanism as individuals and as members of society. The social and political processes that are taking place all over the world, in our region and in our country, emphasize our belief that teaching the Holocaust can point out the dangers to the democratic character of every society and can strengthen those values that contribute to a well and just society.
The Center for Humanistic Education at the Ghetto Fighters' House is hosting an international conference on Holocaust Education for Democratic Values. The conference will include guest lectures, panels, roundtable discussions and workshops.
