The Association for Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR) is launching the newly produced ‘Anti-racist Educational Materials’! The AHDR, in collaboration with German NGO Gesicht Zeigen!, co-produced a series of different anti-racist educational materials. The materials encourage active participation in a democratic, diverse society and promote the exploration of difficult topics such as identity, democracy, gender, diversity and discrimination, by introducing innovative methodologies and concepts in a motivating and entertaining way.
