TD: volume 15, issue 2018, 2, page 219–232


Es folgt die Zusammenfassung in englischer Sprache following the article short description

As technical opportunities develop, new forms of testimony are being created for educational purposes. The latest development are three-dimensional light projections (holograms) of survivors of the Holocaust that, via a very refined voice recognition software, react to users’ questions. The pre-recorded answers and images are currently being developed and started to put in use in Great Britain and in the US. This article discusses whether this new way of teaching and learning could also be suitable for our heterogeneous society here in Germany. At the same time, the current challenges of Holocaust Education are being pointed out to: Especially with regard to the concepts of Human Rights Education or Teaching Tolerance and fighting modern Anti-Semitism there are many misconceptions that need to be addressed before we start investing in and using new and extremely expensive technologies.
