Teaching Tolerance through History: A practice perspective on school trips to the memorial sites of the Holocaust


  • Alice Widerberg

Summary, in English

This work studies the practice of school trips to the memorial sites of the Holocaust with the aim of investigating how history is used in order to form tolerance among the participating students. The study employs a theoretical foundation of practice theory and literature on the academic debate on learning from the past. Thematic analysis is used for analyzing commonalities and differences in 7 interviews with teachers who have experience in organizing the practice. The study finds that the practice uses a predominantly genealogic view of history which puts the Holocaust as an example of what can happen if people do not dare to speak up when they come in contact with intolerance. The bystander is, in this context, interpreted as the role that is in power of preventing atrocities by deciding to speak up against intolerance. The Holocaust is also used as a foundation for discussing both moral dilemmas and current issues that students can hear on the news.
