On the occasion of the European Day of the Righteous, two organizations, the Initiative Lern- und Gedenkort Hotel Silber and the Gariwo Foundation, present two webinars to reflect on the importance and role of the Memory of the Holocaust in Germany and Italy. The first event is dedicated to actual practices and concerns of remembrance and commemoration and their function as a vector for the responsibility towards the present. It will be realized with particular attention to activists, educators, tutors and young people.

Starting from contemplation of horrible atrocities in the past – how can our work be relevant today? How can we inspire activism in our societies? How can we contribute to prevent the resurgence of hatred and nationalism, starting from a reflection on Fascism and Nazism? What kind of education is required? How about the balance between an emotional approach and the teaching of historical facts? What are the experiences taking place at this regard in Germany and Italy, and how can we reinforce a common conscience appreciation and awareness of Memory with a transnational approach?
These are just some of the points we would like to address in our panel, where we talk about the practical experiences in our projects and exchange reflections, ideas and perspectives with each other and with the audience.
