Advice for open dialogue about the Paris attacks with children

CEJI - A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe

The January 2015 attacks in Paris have been troubling enough for adults to deal with; the effect on children can be just as scary and confusing. They may be hearing a variety of opinions, often not well-informed, and are in need of safe spaces to speak with adults about their feelings, the facts, and the implications for their own lives...

Conseils pour un dialogue ouvert avec les enfants au sujet des attentats de Paris

CEJI - A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe

Les attentats de Paris qui ont eu lieu en janvier 2015 ont été très perturbants pour les adultes. Ils sont d’autant plus effrayants et confus pour les enfants qui sont probablement confrontés à diverses opinions, souvent bien mal fondées. Ils ont besoin d’un espace de dialogue pour exprimer leurs sentiments à propos des faits et des répercussions sur leurs propres vies...

#ParisPedagogiques

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.

Communiqué de presse: Lancement du hashtag #ParisPedagogiques pour les écoles à l’occasion de la commémoration de l’Holocauste

#ParisPedagogiques

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.

Press Release: Launching of #ParisPedagogiques for teachers on International Holocaust Memorial Day

#ParisPedagogiques

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.

Too many people have shrugged their shoulders at “just another anti-Semitic incident”...

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.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day | Journée internationale en souvenir de l'Holocauste

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.
