block 17, Auschwitz- Birkenau

This second meeting of the international steering group “Holocaust education and intercultural understanding in South-East Europe: renewing the “Ex-Yugoslav” Pavilion in Auschwitz-Birkenau “ will allow the 6 state coordinators of each working group to present the results of their work, and to discuss measures to be taken for the physical renovation of the entire pavilion, on the basis of the structural/static analysis commissioned by the Austrian National Fund for the Victims of National Socialism, and conveyed to the Auschwitz Museum.

The meeting should also serve to define common approaches for the concept, themes, supporting documentation and design of the joint exhibit.

The objectives of this meeting resonate with UNESCO’s overall mission to promote Holocaust education, as well as the role of museums as tools for intercultural understanding, research and dialogue. The meeting is supported by the UNESCO Venice Office through UNESCO’s Intersectoral Platform for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence.
