Centro Ana Frank Argentina


We launched the web "Significant experiences in the challenge of teaching the Holocaust and Genocides in the 21st century"!

Proyecto del Centro Ana Frank Argentina y IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance).

Launch of Web

In the framework of the commemoration of the International Day in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust on January 27, we launched the website that contains information on how to teach the Holocaust in the 21st century, within the framework of the commitment assumed by the Argentine Republic as a member of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) and as a joint effort between the State, civil society and international organizations.

This website aims to provide material about the genocides experienced in our century in order to address the issue both to work in the classroom and in other areas. In addition, it was born after the International Seminar “Significant experiences in the challenge of teaching the Holocaust and Genocides in the 21st century”, held a few months ago in our country and then in Uruguay, of which we are part as organizers together with UNESCO, the Ministry of Education of the Nation, the IHRA and the OEI of Uruguay, among other important organizations.

We share the link to know the website:
