The booklet about the nomination of the Baltic Way
The booklet about the nomination “The Baltic Way – Human Chain Linking Three States in Their Drive for Freedom” for the international register of the UNESCO program “Memory of the World” had been developed by Latvian, Estonian and Lithuanian National Commissions for UNESCO in
Latvian-Estonian-Lithuanian languages and in French-Russian-English languages.

Project „The Baltic Way and Schools: Keeping the Remembrance Alive”
The project started in June 2009 when the research was undertaken on the reflection of the Baltic Way rally in school books published since 1989 in the Baltic States. As a result of the project, methodological material will be produced with
recommendations for teachers to include the Baltic Way in school programmes and events. In the framework of the project two meetings for researchers and teachers from Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania took place (on 15 June and 22 July 2009) in Riga, Latvia.

Concise recommendations based on the discussions during the meetings will be developed into the complete methodological material till the end of 2009 and tested in Latvian schools during the school year of 2009 - 2010. Later on - updated and translated into English (summer 2010).

The Project is organized by the Occupation Museum of Latvia and the Latvian National Commission for UNESCO with the support of Estonian and Lithuanian National Commissions for UNESCO.
