In the speech, entitled "Applying the Lessons of the Holocaust" (text attached)
, the Director-General stated, "The lives of many people in this room were shaped by their personal experiences of the Holocaust. While others were affected less directly, we are all united by a determination that the atrocities committed during that dark moment of human history must never be repeated."
"Last November at our General Conference, UNESCO’s Member States unanimously adopted Resolution 61, requesting me to consult the Secretary-General of the United Nations regarding his outreach programme entitled 'the Holocaust and the United Nations' with a view to exploring, in consultation with Member States, what role UNESCO could play in promoting awareness of Holocaust remembrance through education and in combating all forms of Holocaust denial."
"(...) we are considering developing activities to mainstream Holocaust Education through textbooks, as well as training conferences of coordinators of our Associated Schools Project Network from all regions of the world."
He noted that "this morning’s exchange is therefore both timely and relevant. We must keep alive the memory of the Holocaust and use it as a rallying point for preventive action."
The five winners were:
- Igor Novikov of Moscow State Maimonides Academy, on "The Holocaust and the
Law: Theoretical aspects";
- Evgenia Kaminskaya of Novgorod State University, Law Faculty, on "Holocaust-Denial Legislation in Russian and European Jurisdiction";
