The 25 Russian participants come from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg , Kemerovo , Nizhny Novgorod, Bryansk, Ivanovo and Murmansk regions, Krasnodar, Rostov, and Tomsk, and one participant from Lithuania. There will be a rich program of intensive studies not only of the tragedy of the Holocaust and the teaching methods of this topic in Israel, including meetings with eye witnesses of the Shoah and World War II veterans, but they will be introduced in the history and geography of the country as a whole by visiting museums and important sights in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv (e.g. Diaspora Museum).
A brief introductory discussion showed that each of the participants came to the seminar with interesting elaborations that will be presented at upcoming seminars.
