Creating Change Makers
The Durban Holocaust & Genocide Centre has been abuzz with activity and renewed energy as the team hosted 20 learners at our Change Maker’s Programme. The programme, aimed at grade 10, 11 and Matric learners, examines three different historical case studies – the Holocaust, the 1994 genocide targeting the Tutsi in Rwanda and Apartheid. During this programme learners were taught critical thinking and leadership skills to resist violence and to challenge the ideas of extremism by becoming upstanders instead of being bystanders. The feedback received from the learners was very positive and encouraging. We look forward to hosting our next Change Makers in December.
