    Holocaust Education Committee

    The Foundation encourages the transmission of the history of the Shoah to schoolchildren. It supports educational initiatives and the organization of training sessions for professors. The Foundation finances, directly or via the Shoah Memorial, many school trips to memory sites in France and throughout Europe. Special attention is paid to the preparation of these trips and to the reports and work done afterward.

    From the 2016 academic year

    The European project Convoi 77 intends to piece together the personal life story of each of the 1321 deportees of the last large convoy that left from Drancy to Auschwitz on July 31, 1944, by sending students from the 37 countries the deportees were from on their traces.

    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.

    Proposing a project

    The committee can fund the development of textbooks and teaching resources (web documentaries, children’s books, exhibitions, etc.) and the organization of educational activities for primary, middle and high school classes. The Foundation also funds trips to memorial sites and training workshops for teachers.
