Following the unrest in Ferguson last summer, Dr. Marcia Chatelain of Georgetown University, asked professors who used Twitter to talk about Ferguson and to use #FergusonSyllabus to recommend texts, collaborate on conversation starters, and inspire dialogue about some aspect of the Ferguson crisis. Slowly high school teachers, early education specialists, guidance counselors, and middle-school instructors wanted ideas too. #ParisPedagogiques is inspired by #FergusonSyllabus and refers to the barbaric recent events in Paris. Paris is also a play with 'pari', a bet or challenge. #ParisPedagogiques equips teachers with practical resources prevent and confront racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia in all its forms. Scroll down for resources and to see who is using the hashtag and how on Twitter and elsewhere.

Cette commémoration du 70e anniversaire de la libération d’Auschwitz est l’occasion de se souvenir et d’honorer les vies perdues et les vies touchées par cette période tragique de l’histoire. La meilleure façon de rendre hommage à leur mémoire est de faire le bilan de ce que nous avons appris de cette période afin d’empêcher la reproduction de tels événements. C’est la raison pour laquelle le CEJI lance une nouvelle initiative sous le hashtag #ParisPedagogiques pour offrir aux écoles des outils pragmatiques et faire face à toute forme de racisme, d’antisémitisme et de xénophobie.

This commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz is a time to remember, and honour, the lives lost and the lives affected by this tragic period in human history. The best way to pay homage to their memory is to take stock of how well we have learned the lessons of this period in order to prevent their ever happening again. For this reason, CEJI is launching a new initiative under the hashtag #ParisPedagogiques so that teachers are practically equipped to prevent and confront racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia in all its forms.

The growing threat of anti-Semitism in France (and Belgium) is not news, but too many people have shrugged their shoulders at “just another anti-Semitic incident”. The link between the attack on Charlie Hebdo and the kosher supermarket highlight that anti-Semitism is only one part of a war against the values of the Enlightenment. This is an opportunity to realise that the fate and security of all of Europe’s peoples, minorities and majorities, are interdependent.
We are all reeling from the events of last week, the attack on Charlie Hebdo and the kosher supermarket in Paris. It seems to be a pivotal moment in which we (all people in Europe) can choose to rise above the dynamics of division or contribute to a continued escalation of intolerance, discrimination, hatred and violence.
