Holocaust on show to Asian students

October 14, 2010

Holocaust teaching abroad has received a major boost with the launch of a ground-breaking course at Yad Vashem in Israel for students from China, Hong Kong and Macau.

The two-week course is being led by Jerry Gotel, the London Jewish Cultural Centre's senior historian.

He has been instrumental in teaching some of them to become Holocaust educators in China and to further their studies in Israel.

Dorit Novak, a director at Yad Vashem, said: "China is an important part of a network of educators we are building all over the world. This seminar opens the door to a culture whose impact on the world will be immense."
