Remembrance education concerning World War II focusses on three pillars: knowledge and insight, empathy-engagement and reflection-action. Insight into how conflicts arise takes preference over a knowledge of the facts.
To garner historic empathy and engagement, analyses are enriched with personal stories (from witnesses, letters, poems). Finally, the current situation is considered: reflection on the meaning of the past in terms of the present day. The strengthening of attitudes such as critical citizenship and societal engagement are vital to this education.
