Witnessing Holocaust History: From Generation To Generation is an international project that commemorates the Holocaust and also provides opportunities for global Holocaust education, engaging the next generation of learners.

The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Centre will provide Witness to History Survivor Testimony programs to World ORT, the global education network driven by Jewish values, where students will have the opportunity to engage directly with a Holocaust survivor and hear their stories. These students will also, through the WE ARE HERE! Foundation learn the importance and legacy of the Partisans’ Song, and join together globally through sharing that music in their own languages. The Partisans’ Song, the song of hope, is the legacy of the partisans and the survivors.

A special broadcast program is scheduled for January 27 which will showcase the testimony shared with the students, allow them to describe and share their experiences with each other, and connect globally through the harmony of learning experiences and the singing of the Partisans’ Song.

WE ARE HERE!’s Eli Rabinowitz told J-Wire:  “This global experience showcases meaningful Holocaust education and remembrance to teachers and students around the world!”
