The IHRA held its first ever seminar focused on teaching and learning about the Holocaust and related issues in El Salvador, an IHRA Observer Country. Drawing on IHRA's educational guidelines, the seminar aimed to teach educators about the Holocaust, why it is important, and how to teach about the topic. The seminar was organized by IHRA's Professional Development Outreach committee, together with the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Education of El Salvador. Programme coordinator Dr. Carrie Olsen facilitated the seminar in Spanish and IHRA delegate Jennifer Ciardelli supervised the programme. The 2016 IHRA Chair, Ambassador Constantinescu, addressed participants in a written address.
