CHDR summer school: “Identity protection and the Holocaust”

In August 2014 in Golubić (Obrovački) in the Republic of Croatia, organized by the Center for History, Democracy and Reconciliation, a summer school for students from Croatia and Serbia was held.

"Identity Protection and the Holocaust"

Summer School of the Center for History, Democracy and Reconciliation

The summer school “Identity Protection and the Holocaust” brought together students from Croatia and Serbia.

The school aimed to provide students with the opportunity to learn about various aspects of identity protection and the Holocaust.

The lecturers at the summer school were:

  • Maria Kavala from Aristoteles University of Thessaloniki,
  • Domna Kofa from Aristoteles University of Thessaloniki,
  • Janko Veselinović, professor at the University of Novi Sad,
  • Darko Gavrilović , professor at the University of Novi Sad.

Students had the opportunity to hear lectures on the following topics: the history of the Holocaust, the protection of the identity of minority groups and the protection of human rights.

This summer school is an important initiative that brought together students from two countries that were faced with complex political and historical relations. Through this school, students had the opportunity to get to know and understand each other better. This was an opportunity for them to acquire new knowledge and skills that will be useful in their academic and professional development.

CHDR, as the organizer of the summer school, hopes that such initiatives will contribute to the development of better Serbian-Croatian relations .

In this way, we want to contribute to the policy of regional stability and to have a positive influence on social and political processes in the countries of the region.

We hope that such summer schools will continue to be organized in the future and that they will contribute to building bridges between people and cultures in the region.
