We are working on a set of European/International Lesson Plans about the consequences of the totalitarianism in the XX Century, in the WWII and in the Spanish Civil War, with emphasis on the Human Rights like the concentration camps during the Holocaust (Shoah) and the current consequences of the Spanish Civil War (Law of Historical Memory), and the resistance movement of people who thought other world and reality was possible. It means our main purpose is to make our students aware of the importance of critical thinking and political and social activism in the construction of the EU through the European History and the development of Human Rights against intolerance and totalitarianism in order to create pedagogical tools to offer a new perspective on the extermination: from Collaboration, Indifference and Resistance in response to the new rise of radical-right parties in Europe.

It could be me It could be you

28th Thessaloniki Lyceum participated  in  the project “it could be me it could be you” organized by the  United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in association with the Hellenic Theatre/Drama Education Network.The project aims at developing students' awareness on human 
rights and refugees using theatre and drama techniques. After having attended a 18 hour training seminar last May and with the support and consult of the experienced drama pedagogue Jenni Karaviti, the teacher Theodora Glaraki involved students in simulation games and role playing games so as to raise awareness on refugees' harsh conditions and extreme need of help. Drama techniques can be proved very effective educative tools to develop empathy in students, mainly because their safe and comfortable life is far away from the flagrant violation of human rights that happens to refugees who are struggling to save their lives and resettle in a foreign and unknown country.
