The seminar for educators took place within the HerStories project on 12 and 13 November 2023 in Sered and Bratislava.

The seminar was open to all educators working in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

About the project:

The HerStories project provided a glimpse into the multifaceted Jewish history of 20th century Europe through the life stories of seven Jewish women from Germany, Poland, Greece, Spain, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. The project aims to contribute to a better understanding of European history through the women's stories and through the analysis of their subjective experiences.
These women's stories include experiences of persecution, deportation and flight, as well as survival, resistance to the regime and rebuilding their lives after the Holocaust and the Second World War. Seven interviewees share their memories of childhood and adolescence in Jewish families before the war, first loves, going to school - that is, recollections of their daily lives, hopes and struggles. Together, these stories form a diverse picture of Jewish women's lives - and European history - in the 20th century.
As part of the HerStories project, the stories of seven Jewish women was presented in a variety of formats for educators, students and the general public.
