We believe that to promote a stronger, more cohesive future for all, it is essential to learn lessons from the genocide in Srebrenica.
Support Our Work
With your help, we can do just that, so please assist us to promote a better, more tolerant society here in Scotland. A society that prizes understanding and cohesion. And a society that promises always to learn, yet never to forget.
Here you will find our education resources to help raise awareness of the Srebrenica genocide and to promote lessons to be learned for future generations.
Our resources include a comprehensive set of lesson plans to be used across Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) education developed jointly between Remembering Srebrenica and the leading experts at the PSHE Association.
There are lesson plans and activities to be used across the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence. Teachers in Scotland can use these, for example, within Social Studies, Religious and Moral Education, Health and Wellbeing and Personal and Social education.
Your use of these resources supports Remembering Srebrenica in our work to raise awareness of the genocide in the UK and contribute to strengthening British society by helping to tackle hatred, racism and intolerance wherever it occurs.
