The project is co-financed by the European Commission through the Programme “Europe for Citizens” line 4 “Active Remembrance”. Only 31 projects all over Europe and 2 in Spain were selected to be supported, which makes us feel very proud and encourages us to keep going.

Objetives

This pioneer project aims at analyse and disseminate the Jewish social and professional inclusion in the Spanish context during World War II by answering the following questions:

  •  Was Spain a final destination or just a “transitory territory” within their escape from Nazism?
  •  How did the Franquista Society accepted these refugees?
  •  Did they find support networks and solidarity values that facilitated their integration?
  •  What were the political and intercultural barriers they found in Spain compared to other destinations?

Between survival and inclusion: The daily and professional activity of Jewish refugees in Spain during World War II. Contributions to the the EU diversity and intercultural dialogue

Based on the theory that History tends to repeat, we aim to enable young people to improve their knowledge of their recent history and heritage and learn from past examples that can be applied to their daily problems and challenges: learn by example or inspirational learning.

We understand Active Remembrance as a training pathway for young learners in order to enhance their motivation and active participation in society and at the same time to boost EU dimension and democratically values (individual and collective).
