As a facilitator, you will lead the educational process of an international group of young people through a 5-day learning process about the Holocaust, antigypsyism and human rights today.

We meet in Krakow and spend our first working day here before moving to Oswiecim to the International Youth Meeting Centre.

We will clarify the aims and objectives of the initiative, agree on a common understanding and approach to remembrance and human rights education. Experienced trainers from the Council of Europe and former facilitator of the programme will provide you with expert input on specific topics related to the Holocaust and non-formal education methods and materials. Together we will visit the former concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau and learn about the history of the place and the suffering of the Roma and Sinti imprisoned there. At the end of our meeting we will speak about roles and responsibilities during the event and finalize the program for DIKH HE NA BISTER 2023.
