    Description (abstract)

    Holocaust education in Finnish educational context. In this project, we are interested in the potential impact of Holocaust Education on Education for Diversities, especially in relation to the development of intercultural competences. Education for diversities is in turmoil and in need of renewal at the moment. We argue that by dealing with the atrocities of the Holocaust (and other genocides) Education for Diversities can provide students with renewed tools to reflect on and deal with increasing multiculturalism in Finland and elsewhere in an ethically acceptable manner, that goes beyond limited and ideological visions of the “Other”.
