On the 23-25 February, 2020 we organized our 8th professional development seminar in Budapest, Hungary. At the event 26 teachers came together from 16 schools in 14 countries to participate, learn, engage and network. Teachers learned about the Centropa database and our materials, attended workshops and presentations about new methodologies and tools, discovered the Jewish neighborhood of Budapest, and had a special visit to the Dohany synagogue and the recently restored Rumbach synagogue. Last but not least, teacher had a chance to meet our Café Centropa Budapest members, Judit Kinszki, Olga Sólyom, and Vera Szekeres-Varsa, who shared their family photographs and life stories with our teachers.
Special thanks to our wonderful partners, the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities (MAZSIHISZ), for being our welcoming hosts for this seminar!
