The United Nations Department of Public Information, together with Facing History and Ourselves and Stories that Move, invited teachers to participate in a special and practical workshop titled Human Rights Education: Practical Tools for Celebrating Diversity and Anti discrimination, which took place on 2 November 2018 at United Nations Headquarters in New York.
Karen Murphy and Kevin Feinberg from Facing History and Ourselves, the international educational and professional development organization, examined the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and provide teachers with tools to teach about the UDHR.
Facilitated by Karen Polak, senior educator from the Anne Frank House, teachers were introduced to the online resource Stories That Move created by the Anne Frank House with eight partners. This online resource integrates innovative teaching methodology, digital tools and primary resource material such as film clips of young people sharing their experiences of exclusion, discrimination and hate crimes. Stories That Move: Toolbox against discrimination is a multi-lingual online initiative developed by the Anne Frank House, Zachor Foundation, Pedagogical University of Cracow, Anne Frank Zentrum, Milan Simecka Foundation, erinnern.at, International School Amsterdam, NGO MART and Eagerly Internet.
