Then What is the parade of heroism. Brave Together is A national project that is an innovative educational way of looking at the memory of the Holocaust - Transition from passive to active memory. Making a way of life accessible that turns our most traumatic memory into a source of inspiration and social entrepreneurship. The program conveys active content and does not only take place in classrooms, these are accompanied by harnessing the classroom for leadership and active volunteer work.
The problem we came to solve: In many populations The memory of the Holocaust is at a low level of consciousness, Memory usually takes place at a limited and limited time, when required. Whether the repression of memory occurs because it is distant, traumatic or because some people feel it does not concern them, at the end of the day, most of us have failed to crack the method of making Holocaust memory relevant to the day-to-day beyond Holocaust Day and Heroism.
the solution: Brave Together seeks to connect all populations in a way that allows inspiration from the memory of the Holocaust, in such a way that the memory allows the creation of motivation to overcome the most difficult moments, for personal advancement but also for creating a better present and future.
Because "The human soul moves away from anything that diminishes its power, and seeks everything that strengthens its spirit." Welcome Spinoza
Thus the parade of heroism transports the memory of the Holocaust to the highest level of consciousness - "memory accompanies me on a daily basis and even harnesses me to action." Just as generations before us have turned our attempt at extermination in Egypt, Israel and Persia, into a tradition that sanctifies optimism and the heroism of the human spirit (Passover, Hanukkah, Purim) - This is what the heroic parade does in relation to the memory of the Holocaust. Because in impossible extreme situations, even one small step becomes an act of heroism - and the marcher is inspired.
Remember that you want and not because you have to!
Brave Together enables the creation of an ecosystem, so that each activity feeds a different activity, a wheel of action that assimilates the memory of the Holocaust within social action. We now seek to allow high schools to put their students into this ecosystem, in a way that will intensify preparation for the Polish journey. Moreover, the program will create in students a spirit that assimilates the memory of the Holocaust in daily life, as a way to create a better world, the meaning of memory will allow it to be preserved, and eventually lead to the creation of a better society.
