MEMOSHOÁ - Holocaust Teaching and Memory Association aims to develop the educational and memory work of the Holocaust, with a special focus on the school environment.

Created following the first seminar for Portuguese teachers on the teaching of the Holocaust organized in August 2008 by the International School of Yad Vashem - Jerusalem, MEMOSHOÁ brings together teachers who participated in this course and who decided to organize themselves to apply and develop the teachings in schools that they acquired in Israel.

The Association was founded by Esther Mucznik, vice president of the Israeli Community of Lisbon, by Ricardo Presumido, Paula Leal Presumido and Marta Torres, history teachers. It is open to the participation and collaboration of all those interested in the development of memory and teaching of the Holocaust in Portugal.

We hope that this website now created will be a link and an instrument to support the work of all those who intend to keep Shoá's memory alive.
