On Monday, 37 students of Erasmus+ team of Gimnazjum nr 9 in Sosnowiec visited Warsaw again. This time we went to Museum of the History of Polish Jews, where we set on a journey through a 1000 years of the history of Polish Jews. We have learnt about the coexistence of the two nations from Middle Ages till nowadaysm, and the heritage and culture of Polish Jews and its influence on all aspects of life in Poland.
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.
