"Hold me" - classes on tolerance

Hold me - classes on toleranceOn November 15, 2017, Peace School educational meeting took place. For the second year, the partner of the Peace School is the National Museum of Ukrainian History in the Second World War (Memorial Complex). The staff of the museum arranged a workshop "Hold me" – dedicated to the International Day of Tolerance, which is celebrated on November 16th.

 

Hold me - classes on toleranceParticipants were offered an interesting program, at the beginning of which they became acquainted with the notion of "tolerance" through the collective drawing up of the definition. Then they reviewed the historical video material about the Righteous Among the Peoples of the World - people who, at the risk of their lives, saved others during the years of persecution, in particular, about Alexandra Shuļjko.

During an exciting game, students felt for themselves how important it is for a person to have mutual help and how difficult it is sometimes to make the right choice. In the course of a team task, they faced real dilemmas: to escape themselves or together? Be a team or everyone for yourself? Help your neighbor or take care of your own success?

The results of the game were discussed with the moderators of the meeting - museum scientists Alla Grushetskaya and Dmitry Gynetdinov. By analyzing their own feelings, the participants of the workshop came to the conclusion that it was not just a decisive choice, especially when the horse had his own life and family life, as it was, in particular, during the Second World War. The representative of the international human rights organization called on those present to feel like human rights activists, to write letters on relevant topics.

We hope that the meeting will remain in the memory of the participants for a long time, their behavior will be more tolerant, and historical knowledge will be deeper. Thank you very much to the team of the Memorial Complex for a greatly organized workshop.
