The pilot project on education and training on the Holocaust and Social Justice was held last month in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Chief expert on religious questions in the Municipality of Plovdiv Father Petar Gramatikoff, who is also the vice chair of BRIDGES Cooperation Circle and a URI Global Trustee, was the leading lecturer. 

During the "Free and Equal" workshop that followed the training, two youth volunteers helped Roma children to fill in a questionnaire teaching them about their fundamental rights. Workshop participants observed, "It was interesting and inspiring to see how children put into practice what they had just learned."
