Students from Israel and Germany who are enrolled in teaching credential programs in the subjects of history and ethics are working together in the “Remembrance and Public History - History Cultures in Israel and Germany” course, designed as an academic exchange program.
Sixteen students of history and ethics from each of the two countries are exploring current research in the subjects of Holocaust education, anti-racist education and German-Jewish and German-Israeli history, using this as a basis for creating teaching and learning materials relevant in both countries.
The project was awarded the Teaching Award of Freie Universität Berlin in 2013. It was developed by the historian Prof. Dr. Martin Lücke, a professor of teaching history at Freie Universität Berlin. It is carried out in cooperation with Dr. Dan Porat and Dr. Shamir Yeger, both from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
