|HKHTC Teacher Training Workshops
HKHTC is pleased to offer teacher training workshops on how to teach the Holocaust. How do we teach and incorporate the stories of the victims, perpetrators and bystanders? Where do we begin? How do we teach the Holocaust in an age-appropriate manner and what is the importance of inter-disciplinary materials?
|HKHTC's Fellowship Trip to Poland
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Fellowship; a series of five emotionally and intellectually challenging workshops which will culminate in participating students from Hong Kong travelling to Poland to visit sites related to the Holocaust. Amongst other places they will visit the Ghettos of Lodz, Warsaw & Krakow and three death camps; Chelmno, Treblinka, Auschwtiz & Auschwitz-Birekenau.
The Fellowship is a once in a life time opportunity to learn about the Holocaust on a much deeper level. It will begin in January each year and the trip to Poland is usually scheduled to take place between March and October.
For more information on The Fellowship, please do not hesitate to contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org
|March Of The Living - Adult Trip To Poland
The March of the Living is an international, educational programme that brings people from all over the world to Poland on Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Memorial Day, to march from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built during World War II.
|Translating The Holocaust - A Planned Symposium
We are planning an important symposium alongside Macau University on how to translate the word 'Holocaust', and other relevant terms, into Chinese.
There is to date no uniform and official translation of this word and it is essential to have a unified translation that adequately reflects the meaning behind the word.
As Holocaust education expands into China, it is important that Holocaust and Jewish educators have a fitting translation that can be promoted amongst scholars, educators and officials in China so that this relatively new translation can be absorbed into mainstream Putonghua / Mandarin.
