Teaching History through the use of World War II Memorials.
By Confronting Memories •
Since its initiation in 2020, the Confronting Memories programme has devoted its work to generating dialogues through history to help build bridges and promote peace. Its methodology is centred around multiperspectivity as a strategic approach to teaching students how to understand other perspectives on history in addition to our own. Within the framework of this programme, various media have been created and events organised to serve this purpose: the exhibition ‘Different Wars’ that examines how World War II is depicted in school textbooks in six countries; short films on the commemoration of World War II and an observation on the current war in Ukraine; public discussions; webinars; summer schools for history educators; and now this pedagogical guide.
