  • Zhivorad Milenkovic


The Holocaust is a state plan of Nazi Germany, which was aimed at the systematic persecution ofvarious ethnic, religious and political groups of people during the Second World War. Early examples of theHolocaust are the pogrom during the Kristallnacht and the Euthanasia program T-4. Later, concentrationcamps were made where most European Jews perished. Regardless of the fact that the Holocaust was themost atrocious crime and genocide since the beginning of humankind, scientists from different fields, especiallyrevisionist historians, seek to minimize the scope of the crime and of the genocide of the Holocaust. There arealso attempts to present the Holocaust as a completely justified and at the time a legitimate process. The YadVashem International School of Jerusalem is the longest and most thoroughly engaged in studying theHolocaust, and it annually organizes dozens of seminars for teachers and educators from around the world.The main objective is to foster a culture of remembrance of the Holocaust victims so that they are not forgottenand are never to happen again. In order to achieve this, learning about the Holocaust is being implementedunder a special didactic and methodological model of the Yad Vashem School which involves learning outsidethe classroom about the Holocaust and within different scientific areas: language, literature, drama, music, finearts, etc. This paper shows the methodical approach to learning about the Holocaust by the model of the YadVashem School.
