Informacja o organizacji
Holocaust Education Trust Ireland is an independent non-profit national charity. We aim to educate and inform people about the Holocaust. In so doing, we raise awareness about antisemitism and all forms of racism, and intolerance in Ireland. HETI provides a range of Holocaust educational programmes for all levels of education as well as programmes for teachers and the general public. HETI coordinates the Certificate in Holocaust Edu-cation for teachers and educators in conjunction with the Herzog Centre, Trinity College Dublin which includes study visits to Krakow, Auschwitz Birkenau and Yad Vashem, Jerusalem. HETI also organises the national Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration in Dublin each year.

Zakres tematyczny projektu
Rola partnera w projekcieWe are looking for partner NGOs to co-ordinate the registration of schools and organisations, source and distribute the crocus bulbs and the information booklet and assist with proof reading the translated booklets. HETI will ship the translated booklets to the partner organisation. The partner NGO sends out the promotional letter in Spring prior to com-mencing the project, inviting schools to register for it. Once the school is registered, the information booklet is sent out with the bulbs in the autumn to all participating schools.
Opis projektuStrand 1 European Remembrance The Crocus Project is an Irish initiative whereby HETI provides yellow Crocus bulbs for young people and school pupils aged 11 years and older to plant in memory of the 1.5 million Jewish children who perished in the Holocaust and thousands of other children who were victims of Nazi atrocities. The yellow flowers recall the yellow Stars of David that Jews were forced to wear under Nazi rule. The Cro-cus blooms around the end of January, about the time of international Holocaust Memorial Day (27 January). Participating in The Crocus Project is a tangible way to introduce young people to the subject of the Holocaust and to raise awareness about the dan-gers of racism and discrimination. The children’s in-volvement in learning about the Holocaust, plant-ing the bulbs and watching the flowers grow, en-courages learning about tolerance and respect. HETI provides a comprehensive Information and Guidelines pack to assist teachers in educating about the Holocaust. The Crocus Project has grown since its inception in 2005 when 6,000 Irish pupils participating to more than 100,000 young people from Ireland and 12 Eu-ropean countries (Ireland, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Poland, Ro-mania, Slovenia, Slovakia) in 2019. We hope in-creasing numbers of countries will join The Crocus Project each year until the whole of Europe partici-pates in it and more than 1.5 million crocuses will bloom.
We are searching for partner NGO’s to join The Crocus Project (subject to funding) particularly from France, Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, Austria and Denmark.
