The Project Participants

The selection of the project participants is a matter for the individual partner schools as the school systems are quite different as well as the school organisation. One school may opt to favour students who have chosen a historical subject to qualify or have an extra historical emphasis in their curriculum. Another school may want to benefit groups of students which are at risk of discrimination or belong to minorities, not necessarily jewish or roma. Still another school will select a class with a strong emphasis on history and languages. In that case the project can be integrated in the normal lessons. The last way of selecting suits a school organisation which is built on class activities.
