Memory Will Teach Us Something

This toolkit was created for teachers, activists, memory practitioners and others seeking resources for innovative educational approaches to addressing past human rights violations and divided memory between students from different communities. Memory Will Teach Us Something draws on the deep educational experience of the Monte Sole Peace Foundation in Italy, and is organized according to four key workshop sessions, each broken down into different activities that, together, aim to create understanding between students and promote critical engagement across multiple levels of memory: personal, familial, community and institutional. The toolkit also features guidelines on key factors for facilitators to consider when planning workshop sessions and notes on suggested materials and timeframes for activities. The authors encourage practitioners to adapt the exercises as needed according to the contexts in which they are working and have included room for notes and observations at the end of each section.
