Joint History Project for the Balkans!

By David Edenden 
This is a great idea which I just discovered. I don't have time to provide all the links except to say that the Greek lobby and Greek government has denounced the results of this project because they portray ethnic Macedonians in Greece in a sympathetic light. I suggest the US congressional Greek Issues Caucus download these books (they're free) and them beg for forgiveness from the Macedonian people.

Joint History Project

The Center for Democracy and Reconciliation in Southeast Europe (CDRSEE) is creating teaching materials and developing an outreach programme as part of an ongoing Joint History Project for Southeast Europe. The CDRSEE has been active in the field of history education since 1998 as part of its overall goal to bring reconciliation and consolidate new democracies, by raising awareness of stereotypes, and increasing understanding of the perspective of the neighbouring ‘other'. This project primarily targets history teachers in Albania , Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, FYR of Macedonia, Romania, Serbia & Montenegro (including Kosovo), Slovenia, and Turkey who participate in teacher training workshops to practice multi-perspective teaching methods."

The Workbooks are available for download in english language only. We will make the other languages avalable in due time.
