Teachers from primary and secondary schools can submit an application for this training programme on teaching about the Holocaust until March 25, the US Embassy to Slovakia informed on its website and also on its Facebook profile. They will be informed about the result by April 15. The initiative involves teachers of history, social science, ethics or other humanities, with excellent knowledge of English. 

A week-long programme for 14 teachers from seven countries has been organised for 11 years during July and August at selected American schools across the US. It emerged from the initiative of the US Department of State, the Association of Holocaust Organizations (AHO) and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.

The programme focuses on deepening the education about the Holocaust and showing teachers new ways of teaching about the topic to offer them a new perspective, and on mutual interaction of teachers from various countries. 

Teachers are accommodated in campuses at the schools, and apart from participation at the seminar, they are expected to actively attend other common events with other participants, prevailing American teachers. Part of the programme is usually also a one-day visit to the Museum of Holocaust Victims in Washington, DC, the SITA newswire wrote.

The program is financed by the US Embassy in Slovakia, AHO and the Slovak Education Ministry.
