The project UNITED – UNderstand, Inform, Think, EDucate is a cross-sectoral cooperation of public institutions, CSOs and teaching institutions involving Jewish history and education experts from Croatia, Italy, Slovenia and Poland.

Project objectives are to engage young people in the culture of remembrance and empower them to be aware and act in response to the antisemitism today.

Within the project the students will research less-known events from their local communities, related to Holocaust, and commemorate those events by using art to reflect on what they researched. The interdisciplinary approach will allow the students to get a deeper perspective of the Holocaust and more personalized approach towards it.

In addition, the project will promote EU values and raise the students’ civic competences. Using the gained knowledge, the students will implement an initiative for raising awareness of the hate speech in their communities today and make recommendations for policy makers on how to tackle that issue. By creating the network of students from Croatia, Poland and Italy, that will analyse the researched local events and get insight on how they relate to one another, and to the broader European context, the project will raise their awareness of our common history and values.

Through the art exhibitions/performances, student initiative and policy recommendation, and the “How to” guide the project will have an impact on the wider community.

Nansen dijalog centar (Croatia) – Coordinator
