CENTROPA WEBINAR: Teaching Jewish history and national history. Textbooks in Moldova and Georgia


Centropa is hosting webinars to discuss current issues on Jewish life in Moldova and
Georgia. In two sessions, experts from both countries spoke about antisemitism and current
challenges to society, as well as opportunities and challenges to teaching Jewish history in
both countries.

The first webinar took place on Monday, December 13th, 2021, at 16.00 to 17.00 CET.

Topic: Teaching Jewish history and national history. Textbooks in Moldova and Georgia.


How is Jewish history presented in history textbooks in Moldova and Georgia today? How
does this differ historically? To what extent is Jewish history told alongside or integrated into
national history?


Speakers:
Dr. Keti Kakitelashvili, Tbilisi State University
Dr. Sergiu Musteață, Ion Creangă State Pedagogical University
Moderated by Lasha Shakulashvili, visiting graduate student at Tel Aviv University
The webinar was held in English, with simultaneous translation into Georgian, Russian, and Romanian.
