From December 4-8 2017, UNESCO and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) jointly organized the second International Conference on Education and the Holocaust (ICEH) in Washington, DC. The conference brought together 26 participants from 10 countries with the goal of strengthening their capacities to advance education about the Holocaust and genocide in their respective countries. Of great importance was the relevance of this education within the teams’ national contexts. The conference ultimately led to the development of 10 country-specific initiatives. The 2017 ICEH cohort comprises representatives of institutions from Argentina, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Namibia, South Africa, Tunisia and Ukraine.
