Bosnia and Herzegovina

Training material for teachers and trainers: 

Teaching materials on “The Fate of Roma and Sinti during the Holocaust” are available on the website www.romasintigenocide.eu aiming to represent a collective cultural memory and to form an indispensable basis for the creation of a Europe-wide awareness regarding the history of this genocide. By presenting documents with short texts and assignments, the project aims to give teachers the tools to easily develop a lesson or series of lessons focusing on a historical period or theme, on a regional approach or on a personal approach.

“Handbook for History Teachers on Teaching 20th-century European History”, by Robert Stradling. (Council of Europe: 2001 ISBN 92-871-4466-4) has been specially translated into Bosnian because it provides a wealth of practical examples of the new teaching methods and ideas on how to use a variety of sources in classrooms. (See “HISTORY TEACHING IN SCHOOLS: The work of the Council of Europe and UNESCO in Bosnia and Herzegovina” report)

The Council of Europe produces a collection of pedagogical fact sheets on Roma history, culture and language. “Information Fact Sheets on Roma History” have been translated into Serbian and are available for download on Council’s web-site on education about Roma history.
