How Donations Are Used

Yad Vashem UK Foundation thanks you for your donation, and the money you have kindly given will be used to help fund our annual Teachers' Educational Seminar as well as other Yad Vashem projects such as the Shoah Victims' Names Recovery Project.

This project raises funds to send educators to a week long seminar at the International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem specifically designed for teachers and educators in Jewish schools and organisations in the UK. Through lectures from world renowned experts and scholars at Yad Vashem the educators are given an in-depth look at teaching the Holocaust, and provided with tools to enable them to confront the difficult questions involved in Holocaust teaching, from a general and a Jewish perspective as well as provided with skills to reach out to different age groups.

In February 2013, the third group of teachers from a wide variety of Jewish schools, both primary and secondary, embarked on a week’s seminar with some of the top educators and eminent professors at Yad Vashem.

These teachers were fully sponsored for the seminar including hotel, meals and air-fares.Your donations helped to fund this vital project. Without your support, this project would not have been possible.
