Over ten years since the proclamation of the Holocaust Remembrance Day, a conference was held in Rome with the contribution of several agencies and organizers of educational journeys to Auschwitz and other concentration and extermination camps. The discussion focused on the actual necessity and didactic usefulness of such visits, with reference to the incumbent passing away of the last Shoah survivors, the journey modalities, the ways of involving schools and pupils, the training of teachers - the crucial point being the shaping of a memory transmitted also by such indirect witnesses as camps and their expositional facilities on the one side, and educationists and teachers on the other, so that tomorrow’s students may become self-conscious citizens.
Keywords: Holocaust Remembrance Day, Shoah, witnesses, teacher training, memory journeys, extermination camps
