Applications are now open for the Holocaust Educational Project delivered by Springboard Opportunities Ltd on behalf of the North East PEACE III Partnership, due to begin on July 3 this year.

The project aims to inform participants on how to draw parallels between anti-Semitism and discrimination leading up and during World War 2 and sectarianism and racism.

Participants will be introduced to the history of the Holocaust with particular emphasis on the different groups of people whose lives changed beyond recognition at the Nazi camps in Auschwitz, Poland

The organisers are currently seeking teenagers (18+), young adults, youth workers, teachers and leaders in the North East Cluster (Ballymena, Ballymoney, Coleraine, Limavady, Larne and Moyle) to participate in a tailored programme which explores prejudice, sectarianism and racism through facilitated learning workshops and seminars. In addition individuals will be facilitated on a study visit to the former Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau

If you are interested in getting involved please contact Jen Ashton at hep@springboardprogrammes.com or call 028 90315111 to request an expression of interest form.
