1. Definitions

(Definitions taken from the book "Pour résister...", edited by Alain Chouraqui, Ed. du Cherche Midi / Fondation du Camp des Milles, 2015).

Racism is the belief in the existence of human "races" and inequality between them. Based on the idea that some "races" are superior to others, racism leads to abusive generalizations, to attribute the supposed characteristics of a group to all members of that group and to judge individuals according to their true or supposed membership in a "race". Moreover, even today, social or cultural differences are sometimes demagogically exploited in a racist sense, leading to the transformation of certain social or cultural problems into dangerous collective stigmatization.

Anti-Semitism can be considered as a specific racism against Jews. But its many specificities often lead to its being mentioned separately. Numerous prejudices, often contradictory, fuel anti-Semitism according to the times: Jews are alternately accused of being revolutionaries or capitalists, cowards or warmongers, lousy or rich. Historically, anti-Semitism has been fueled by several factors: some are linked to the fact that Jews have always been a minority everywhere, and that minorities are easy scapegoats for the majority populations.

Training and awareness actions :

  • New training area Fight against racism and anti-Semitism for staff since March 2021 registration on GEFORP
  • Agreement with the Camp des Milles memorial site:

The only large French internment and deportation camp (1939-1942) still intact, the Camp des Milles is today an innovative and unique museum of History and Human Sciences in Europe. Based on its history, it allows us to understand how extremism, racism, anti-Semitism and discrimination can lead our societies to the worst, and presents the capacities of each person to resist these intolerances.

Supported by Aix Marseille University and the Camp des Milles Foundation, and under the direction of Alain Chouraqui,the UNESCO Chair in Citizenship Education, Human Sciences and the Convergence of Memories is unique in France. It offers educational activities based on both the historical and scientific dimensions of genocide, in order to understand the underlying psychosocial mechanisms and to develop preventive actions.

Co-produced with the University of Aix-Marseille, the training provided by the Memorial Site gives meaning to the commitment of executives in the accomplishment of their mission of authority within their work organization, enlightening the individual on his or her strengths and weaknesses in the exercise of authority as well as in the execution of his or her duties, and highlighting each person's capacity for resistance in the face of difficult situations and environmental aggressions.
