Lessons for Today

The Anne Frank Exhibition in Serbia was launched throughout the project Historija, Istorija, Povijest – Lessons for Today. Apart from the project’s main goals, which are to educate young people about the recent episodes of the past, the exhibition is set to promote critical thinking about historical events and their relevance for contemporary challenges and to inspire an interdisciplinary, civic-education oriented history education. The exhibit also has seven local panels of the past 60 years of the country. The panels cover the period of the World War II in the region, the persecution of Jews and other groups in Nazi-occupied Serbia, the period of Yugoslavia under Josip Broz Tito and the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. 
Two regional Teacher Training Seminars also took place in the country in Čačak in March, 2015 and in Belgrade in April, 2016.

The project was supported by the Anne Frank House, in cooperation with local partner organizations from Croatia (Croatian Education and Development Network for the Evolutionof Communication – HERMES), Bosnia-Herzegovina (Youth Initiative for Human Rights-YIHR and Humanity in Action-HIA), Macedonia (Youth Educational Forum – MOF), Serbia (Open Communication – OK, a youth-led non-governmental association) and is funded by the European Union.

Memory Walk

Within the Project Historija, Istorija, Povijest – Lessons for today 89 Memory Walk workshops have been conducted in Serbia. With a special attention payed to geographical diversity, the trainers of Open Communication have visited 23 cities and municipalities across the country. The workshops took place in different schools, including 41 grammar schools, 42 vocational high schools and 6 elementary schools. The goal was to visit cities and schools in which students don’t have opportunities for non-formal education. Altogether, approximately 2000 pupils have participated and, more than 100 professors have attended the workshops.
You can watch the films created during the workshops here.
