The Bystander project
The Bystander project was one of the priority themes of the Living History Forum for the period 2006-2009. The project consists of a comprehensive educational material supported by teachers training, a permanent and a traveling exhibition and a research component.
With the Holocaust as its point of departure, the aim of the project is to create awareness concerning the role of the bystander. What does it mean to be a bystander?
What stops us from intervening, in the underground, against bullies, or in larger contexts when human rights are violated in a more serious way?
How are we responsible when we do not intervene in any way?
