The HEGP Foundation is making available to schools the multimedia educational programme, Moral Responsibility: Fact, Fiction Propaganda . The programme was developed in conjunction with Austrian Holocaust Memorial Interns. To date, the Gedenkdieners have addressed several universities, colleges, and high school classes, detailing their motivation for choosing Gedenkdienst rather than mandatory military service. The response to Moral Responsibility: Fact, Fiction Propaganda has been overwhelmingly positive and several speaking engagements have been given and are scheduled in schools across Quebec and Ontario.
The presentation is particularly relevant given the terrorists acts occurring in the Middle East and Myanmar as well as the rise of new far-right-wing parties and politicians in America and Europe. Only through educating young people about the danger of stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination can we attempt to change the climate of hatred, which exists in many multicultural environments.
