A double issue of Prospects (# 153 and #154) focuses on international perspectives of Holocaust Education

Guest Editors: Zehavit Gross and E. Doyle Stevick This double issue includes important contributions and new insights from researchers who have examined the practices of Holocaust education in various parts of the world. An open call for papers for this issue brought more than 30 contributions, a pool of high quality papers that greatly exceeded the expectations so that a double issue on the topic has been produced. The broad interest and new research is a testimony both to the significance of the field and to its challenges. The articles in the first volume contribute empirical research about the actual policies and practice of Holocaust education and carry direct lessons from school and classroom practices not only for countries in Europe but also for human rights and peace education worldwide. The second volume continues to reflect its authors’ practical and intellectual engagement with the implications of Holocaust education for human rights, multicultural, peace, and civic education.   PROSPECTS is UNESCO's Quarterly Review of Comparative Education
