Japanese newspaper cites JHP's work "on common understanding"

March 13, 2015 -- The major Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun, based in Tokyo with a daily circulation of about 8 million, featured the CDRSEE and its Joint History Project in a recent series on history education around the world, citing "the goal to prevent the wounds from the past from becoming deeper and to work on common understanding".

The Asahi Shimbun correspondents visited the CDRSEE last month, speaking with Executive Director Zvezdana Kovac and Programmes Director Corinna Noack-Aetopulos about the project and its impact.

They went on to Kosovo, and spoke with educators who count on the JHP materials in their classrooms. JHP workbooks are in use in many schools in Kosovo and supported by the local Ministries of Education.

The reporters also visited a school in Bujanovac, where the teacher there uses the JHP books "with the goal to prevent the wounds from the past from becoming deeper and to work on common understanding", the newspaper said.
