IWALK 'JOODS VERZET IN AMSTERDAM'

IWalk 'Jewish Resistance in Amsterdam'

 

LOOP JE MEE?

Als het gaat om de Tweede Wereldoorlog, denk je al snel aan Joodse slachtoffers en Nederlandse verzetsstrijders. Maar wat weet je over Joods verzet? Tijdens deze IWalk bezoek je de oude Jodenbuurt van Amsterdam. Dit is een stukje Amsterdam waar de Joodse geschiedenis innig verstrengeld is met de geschiedenis van de stad.


Een buurt waar zich tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog veel afspeelde - uitsluiting, razzia’s en deportaties - waaraan de meerderheid van de Amsterdamse Joden niet kon ontkomen. Maar naast de bekende verhalen heeft deze buurt ook iets anders meegemaakt: riskante daden van Joods verzet, die zich soms in het geheim en soms in het openbaar afspeelden. Wil je meer weten over Joods verzet in Amsterdam? Loop dan mee met deze IWalk. 


Een IWalk is een historische wandeling, gebaseerd op getuigenis video’s, die je via een applicatie volgt. Je ontdekt een stuk lokale geschiedenis terwijl je een buurt bewandelt en persoonlijke verhalen beluistert over gebeurtenissen die zich op dat plek hebben afgespeeld. Stap terug in de tijd met deze IWalk.

IWALK, YOU WALK?

When it comes to the Second World War in the Netherlands, you will have heard of Jewish victims and Dutch resistance fighters. But have you heard about Jewish resistance? On this IWalk, you will visit parts of the old Jewish quarter of Amsterdam. This is a part of Amsterdam where Jewish history is deeply intertwined with the history of the city.


A neighborhood that has gone through a lot during the Second World War: segregation, raids and deportations that most of Amsterdam’s Jews did not manage to evade. But besides these well-known narratives, lesser known events have also taken place in this neighborhood: risky acts of Jewish resistance, sometimes in secrecy, and sometimes out in the open. Care to know more? Discover the IWalk ‘Jewish Resistance in Amsterdam’. 


An IWalk is a historical walk, based on testimony videos. You follow the walk via an application. During an IWalk you discover a piece of local history, while listening to personal stories about events that had taken place in that specific neighborhood. Walk into history with our IWalk.

Civic Education in the Netherlands

The new Civic Education law in the Netherlands, which went into effect on the 1st of August 2021, requires schools to work towards civic engagement and social cohesion in a more systematic way than before. Specifically, schools are expected to focus on human rights and freedoms, work towards civic competences and develop knowledge of and respect towards all groups in society. Our project was called into life to help educators across Europe work towards these competences in an engaging way.

European Network of Testimony-based Digital Education 

The European Network of Testimony-based Digital Education is an ERASMUS+ strategic partnership between the Zachor Foundation, based in Hungary, Human-ed, in the Netherlands.

OpenEye, in the Czech Republic and the Jewish History Association of South Wales (JHASW), in Wales, UK. 


The partnership was inspired by the need for sustainable digital materials that offer a firm methodology rooted in democratic values. This civic education programme equips teachers across Europe with locally relevant content, based on the Shoah Foundation’s unique archive of digital survivor testimonies. With the help of the testimonies, students reflect on human rights and freedoms, and develop civic competences. 


Within the Dutch context, a series of 10 lessons will be developed, focusing on topics that are relevant for the Dutch context, but often carry a wider, more international perspective as well. 

Tackling topics such as discrimination, Xenophobia, Antisemitism, Islamophobia, identity, resistance and solidarity, the lessons will aim to help students reflect on the society they live in, challenges that they and others face, and their role as citizens to uphold human rights and freedoms. 


Throughout the duration of the project, a sounding board of teachers and other educators will be consulted, in order to ensure the lessons are well-aligned with teachers’ needs. As part of the project, a training programme will also be developed, in order to support participants of the sounding board, and other educators in effectively using the teaching and learning materials.
