A key aspect of the project is to understand the extent to which Jewish cemeteries/heritage is currently utilised as a teaching resource to present the Jewish narrative in Europe developing greater understanding of Europe’s diverse multicultural past and present, promoting empathy, tolerance and respect while combatting ignorance, prejudice, antisemitism and racism.

Dr Joanna Michlic has been assigned to investigate the secondary schools systems and authorities in each of the seven selected countries to understand 

  • to what extent Jewish cemeteries/the Jewish experience is currently incorporated 
  • where decision making lies and how to impact the systems
  • the openness of teacher training institutes to address the topic

Tourism Research

Tourism and regional development research is another important dimension of the project.   

Dr Paul Darby has been assigned to build on the initial results of the ESJF publication ‘Jewish Cemeteries and Sustainable Protection’, by conducting a feasibility study to explore the full potential of Jewish cemeteries as cultural tourist sites.

This will include

  • conducting a ‘market analysis’ to understand the potential of Jewish cemeteries to serve as tourist destinations
  • consulting with key stakeholders in the tourism industry e.g. national, regional and local heritage, cultural and tourism agencies, cultural heritage tour companies, EU funded initiatives (e.g. Rediscover, Moreshet network, Parallel Traces), tour guides, companies providing digital tourism, potential consumers – national and international, organisers of Jewish cultural heritage routes, genealogical bodies, museums etc.
  • documenting case studies; examples of scenarios where Jewish cemeteries have successfully served as tourist destinations
  • exploring how Jewish cemeteries might promote sustainable tourism
  • examining particularly the potential of places in remote, rural areas where many of these cemeteries are located
  • considering new tourism ‘products’ that could be developed that utilises especially new digital technologies.
