“Holocaust”

Aim

The aim of the programme is to let the children know what happened during World War II, both in Europe and Greece; furthermore, to let them learn about the fate of the Jews and the other victims of the Holocaust through historical documents, photographs and testimonies; finally, to encourage them to discuss the importance of the moral issues involved in our lives today.
