Welcome to our Outreach Education page
HETI organises workshops, public lectures, exhibitions and cultural events throughout the island of Ireland.
The Holocaust Narrative is a new workshop introduced by HETI in 2015. It is an interactive presentation for senior cycle school students. This presentation gives an overview of the history of the Holocaust as it developed between 1933 and 1945 and considers the changing contexts before, during and after WWII.
HETI has several exhibitions available to schools and libraries, accompanied by specially written booklets. Many libraries arrange “school days” tours, talks or workshops to coincide with the exhibitions.
HETI arranges public lectures by Holocaust scholars throughout the year
HETI produced documentary Holocaust Survivors Living in Ireland features Suzi Diamond, Jan Kaminski, the late Inge Radford, Tomi Reichental and Rosel Siev recounting their stories of survival during the Holocaust.
HETI produces high quality Holocaust educational materials for all of their programmes. These are non-nation specific and provide excellent resources for educators, students, and researchers.
Visits to Centres of Holocaust Education
HETI encourages Transition Year teachers to take their students on a one-day visit to either of two centres of Holocaust education in England: The Imperial War Museum Holocaust Exhibition in London or the Beth Shalom Holocaust Centre in Nottingham. Both have excellent exhibitions and educational programmes amongst the facilities they arrange for school groups.
Increasing numbers of senior cycle students are participating in study visits to Auschwitz-Birkenau with their schools. HETI is pleased to assist in the preparation of students and their teachers for this important study visit, and to guide them through the reflections afterwards. HETI also provides information booklets which are useful resources for those undertaking this trip.
