Remembering the Holodomor

We invite you to our upcoming webinar entitled ‘Remembering the Holodomor’, which will take place on 8 November at 4 pm (Brussels time). The meeting will last 1,5 h.

 

The Holodomor, known as the Great Famine of 1932-1933 and genocide of the Ukrainian nation, stands as a tragic testament to a long-standing disinformation campaign.

Our webinar aims to honor the memory of the Holodomor’s victims and equip educators with the tools to enhance students’ awareness of disinformation and fake news.

We’ll be introducing free educational resources developed by the ENRS, designed to help educators address this challenging chapter of Ukrainian history. These resources include a presentation, an essay, and a lesson plan.

 

Our speakers will be Daria Chudinova from Holodomor Museum in Kiev, Karolina Stojek-Sawicka, teacher from Liceum Ogólnokształcące (Secondary School) nr V, Wrocław, Poland.

 

Daria Chudinova will present the museum’s experiences in the area of the Holodomor education with different target groups, among other students and teenagers.

 

Karolina Stojek-Sawicka, who used educational materials developed by ENRS with her students, will share her experiences and provide tips on how to conduct a lesson about the Holodomor.

We kindly ask you to transfer this information to the teachers and educators who might be interested in participation in the webinar.  

 

With the creation of the Hi-story Lessons platform, we’re dedicated to providing user-friendly teaching resources in 7 languages.

 

We look forward to seeing you on the 8th of November!
