HOLOCAUST EDUCATION AND GENOCIDE PREVENTION

Philippines

Philippines

The Philippines are part of the Asia group , which includes India, China, Mongolia, Japan, the Korean peninsula, Southeast Asia and the Pacific islands. Australia and New Zealand, though geographically close, are treated separately because their history as European settler societies has led to unique implications with regard to understandings of the Holocaust.


The PHILIPPINES have held Holocaust remembrance events  in recent years. In early 2011, the Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme and the Jewish Association of the Philippines co-sponsored a Holocaust lecture for 400 students at the University of the Philippines Integrated School. The next month, the United Nations Information Center in Manila hosted an exhibit on the Holocaust at the Department of Foreign Affairs. 

The  Filipino civilian populations suffered atrocities under Japanese occupation during World War II; these events could make for an interesting connection to the European Holocaust.
