Relating the Holocaust to other genocides
Many teachers and students wish to relate teaching and learning about the Holocaust to understanding more about other mass atrocities, genocides and crimes against humanity. However, to date, little conceptual thinking has been done about how to do this appropriately and effectively in the classroom.
Paul Salmons, of the IOE's Holocaust education team, has been chairing an international group of experts who are exploring these issues and who have developed suggestions, advice and information for classroom teachers.
This group has been working under the auspices of the intergovernmental International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance for Holocaust Education, Remembrance and Research, consisting of 27 member states. The papers of Salmons' committee were accepted by the plenary of member states and are now available to download.
