A group of Chinese teachers have begun a tour of Israel as part of a new Holocaust education programme.

The 20 teachers, from Hong Kong, Macau and mainland China, are participating in a seminar to encourage in-depth study of the Holocaust and examine ways in which the subject can be taught.

During the two-week trip they will visit Israel’s Yad Vashem museum and meet historians and Holocaust survivors, as well as tour sites in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
