This is a pilot study about the potential of history education about Nazism and the Holocaust. The aim is, 1) to establish whether it is possible to conduct empirical analysis about “Education after Auschwitz,” and 2) based on empircal observation improve the theoretical assumptions about the relationship between education and the specific theme of Nazism and the Holocaust. The empirical part consists of five case studies about different aspects of “Holocaust education” in two Upper Secondary schools in Frankfurt.

The above abstract is taken from the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance Education Research Project. Please also consult the full list of abstracts in 15 languages and the accompanying publication Research in Teaching and Learning about the Holocaust: A Dialogue Beyond Borders.
