'Developing basic training for teachers at teacher training colleges and universities in Austria, Bavaria and Switzerland in order to strengthen teachers to confront Holocaust distortion and antisemitism by developing professional knowledge, motivational orientations and beliefs' takes into consideration that schools are one of the most relevant places for addressing antisemitism and Holocaust distortion, the project explores the possibilities of preparing teachers with specific professional knowledge during their basic teacher training in order to successfully confront these issues within and around the classroom. The project will identify relevant representatives of teacher training institutions from the beneficiary countries to analyze the curricula and discuss possible changes and potential interventions. The results will be published digitally, to ensure the widest possible dissemination of good practices. This is a significant contribution to advancing high-quality education about the Holocaust by a team that combines the necessary expertise and experience.
