Education for all - a national initiative
Since its inception, young students and their teachers have been the main target group for The Living History Forum’s educational programs. However, in 2019 we were one of four government agencies* tasked within a new National initiative from the Swedish Government aimed at target groups not always reached by education about the Holocaust and antisemitism, antigypsyism/anti-Roma discrimination and other forms of racism.
This included learners in non-formal adult education systems, students with neuropsychiatric disorders, newly arrived immigrants and vocational students. This meant striving for increased accessibility and different aids without simplifying the complex issues.
After working closely with the target groups and partners, our new platform launched in March 2021.
