A new seminar for South Korean educators opened at the International School for Holocaust Studies of Yad Vashem on Sunday. A group of some 20 educators, including teachers, principals and administrators, will take part in the comprehensive 12 day program.

During the course of the seminar, the educators will attend lectures and discussions on Holocaust history and pedagogy, meet with Holocaust survivors and hear their testimony, experience extensive, in-depth tours of the campus and have the opportunity to partake in classes taught by educators and historians about various topics related to the Holocaust.

“Over the past few years, we have seen growing interest in the Holocaust around the world, including in countries geographically far from the events themselves,” said Avner Shalev, Chairman of Yad Vashem.  “The seminar for educators from South Korea joins others we have held recently for Asian educators from China and India. I welcome the increasing significance of Holocaust education in Korea, and am pleased that we are able to host this first group of Korean educators at our School.”

The seminar, made possible by the support of the Adelson Family Foundation and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Israel, marks the first time the school has hosted a delegation from South Korea.
