About 600,000 Jews from Hungary were murdered during the Shoah. To give its name back to each of these men, women and children, the International Institute of Yad Vashem has launched a major research project.
This two-year project, made up of an international team and coordinated by the Centre for Nordic Studies at the University of Helsinki, examines the histories and divergent fates of circus owners, circus families and performers in Europe under National Socialism.
L’enfant et la Shoah-Yad Layeled France offers an exhibition-workshop focusing on Jewish children in Paris during the Second World War. This educational tool allows primary school teachers to approach the history of the Holocaust through rescue stories while taking the children’s sensitivity into account.
The Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah backs various projects in six areas: research on the Holocaust, anti-Semitism and other genocides; transmitting the memory of the Holocaust; teaching about the Holocaust; promoting and passing on Jewish culture; solidarity with Holocaust survivors; fighting anti-Semitism; and fostering intercultural dialogue.
