The RETHINK project (Remembrance Education for THINKing critically) aims to facilitate the dissemination of programmes that promote tolerance and respect towards diversity, while developing media literacy and critical thinking skills. We believe that remembrance education, in linking past and present, sheds valuable light on the historical significance of polarised identities, offers insight into European history, and tools to combat intolerance.
