AUSCHWITZ SEMINAR

& VIRTUAL

TOUR

Please watch 6 min. footage that explains the idea of Auschwitz Seminar & Virtual Touring.


 

 

 

 

Our offer of Auschwitz virtual tour is design for students, scholars and professionals.

OFER FOR STUDENTS

Our primary goal is to provide educational services to the students and adult professionals. We adjust the content to the adult groups of students as well as to the high school pupils. We believe that the all details like: level of educational engagement, grade of the students and other expectations can be discussed and set with the organizer.

OFFER FOR PROFESSIONALS

In the history of activity we organized many visits in Auschwitz for professional groups of adults: university employees, scholars, historians, but also politicians, NGo members, as well as corporate workers and VIP from the private sector. We saw the growing interests in visiting Auschwitz among people from corporations and business circles.

WEBINAR FORMULA

We are absolutely flexible with the formula of the meeting. This can be a: webinar, online discussion, online seminar or lecture. This will depend on to what extend the participants are interested in engaging in the discussion with the educator.

EQUIPMENT requirements

The webinars do not require expensive equipment. In fact what participants have to have is the computer with the internet and the online camera. However in order to improve the quality of the connection it is worth to invest in the better external camera as well as external microphone.

Up to 100 participants

We do not have limits in terms of the online webinars. However we have to remember that in terms of the discussions and Q&A such a large group of participants make our online meeting less effective. It is recommended to have maximum 30 people in the webinar.

LiVE streaming

This is exceptionally important: this will not be a recorded presentation. This is a live streaming webinar managed by one of our educator. In other words there will be an educator who will be guiding You virtually through the Memorial Place Auschwitz. You can ask questions and You can dialogue with him.

AUSCHWITZ SEMINAR in your classroom...

We offer 2-3 hours virtual tour around Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial onsite in the place of your residence.



The Idea...

The online webinars are not the only option. We believe for many students and professionals the offline presentation onsite would be also extremely interesting option. This would include: arrival of the educator to the school / company / institution and presentation of the virtual tour to the audience. In this scenario the educator would be still using digital resources but will be physically meeting with the group in the chosen location. This is much more intimate option and allows having a direct contact between the educator and the group.

What does Auschwitz Seminar include?

What does Auschwitz Seminar include? The Auschwitz Seminar includes practically entire area of Auschwitz-Birkenau complex. We start in Auschwitz no. 1 and then we move to Auschwitz II-Birkenau. Auschwitz III – Monovitz doesn’t exist, however we can have a look on the map where this camp was located and certainly what is there right now. If fact we do not change the itinerary of the visit that we offer onsite. However we can include many more places, objects and locations. We can expand and enrich our seminar on the more specific subjects like: resistance in Auschwitz, escapees, uprisings etc. Please see what our physical tours included so far >>> www.memorialpartnership.pl

Adjustment and flexibility

We are very flexible. We try to make our arrangement as simple as possible. So far we used to work with adults, professional and students. We understand how important is to adjust the program to the customer’s expectations. We understand that the webinar may be logistically easier to organize on the other hand for some people the digital requirements may pose an obstacle not that easy to overcome. The Auschwitz Seminar organized onsite have several advantages and the most important is the direct contact between the educator and the audience.

We are working over the virtual reality project of the former concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. In our presentation we use the materials that are available on the site of the Museum Auschwitz including the Auschwitz Panorama project. However I would like to enrich this educational tool by adding more 3d graphics, testimonies, descriptions etc. However all of those graphic solutions are not the essence of the tour. The most important is a narrative. How we construct the story of Auschwitz and what sort of message this place represent to us today. This is crucial in our work. Pictures, recordings and virtual reality projects are just helping us in this mission.

HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL PARTNERSHIP

 

 

 


 

The mission of the Holocaust Memorial Partnership has not changed over the years.

"A visit to Auschwitz is for many people a very emotional experience. One of our priorities is to make every effort to ensure that each visit runs in a harmonious way and becomes a form of commemoration. Because Auschwitz is a lesson for all of us—the lesson that even democratic systems, under certain circumstances, can turn toward authoritarian rule, and that even the most civilized societies can turn towards brutal and populist solutions. As Edmund Burke said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." In the current situation, in which Europe enters the era of rising nationalism, the lesson from Auschwitz should be very explicit and visible."
