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.

Students of Erasmus+ team Sosnowiec visited Schindler's Factory

On the 27th October students of Erasmus+ team, together with students who participated in the Memory Project last school year, took part in another interesting history lesson about II World War. This time we visited Schindler’s Factory Museum in Kraków, where we learned about the story of Oskar Schindler, Righteous Among the Nations, who in this same factory saved over 1000 Jews during the war. Listening to the interesting story of war - time  Kraków presented to us by the guides, we walked along the streets of occupied Kraków, watched the everyday life through windows of a Kraków tram, squeezed through narrow streets of Kraków ghetto and peered into tiny flats of Jews who lived there.  

On the way to the Museum we visited the headquarters of the Genaral Gouvernon Hans Frank during the war – The Wawel Castle.
