BCH - Special Committee for Remembrance Education

In 2008, the then Minister for Education took the first step towards the creation of a Special Committee for Remembrance Education (BCH - Bijzonder Comité voor Herinneringseducatie). This committee consists of educationalists working for several major actors in remembrance education (In Flanders Fields Museum, War and Peace in Flanders Fields, Kazerne Dossin, the Fortress of Breendonk, the Auschwitz Foundation, the Institute for Veterans IV-NIOOO, RCN Justice & Démocratie, Tumult), the educational guidance services of the different educational networks and the Ministry of Education and Training. Their common task is to support teaching teams by contributing to transparency and quality of what is on offer in the field of remembrance education. In this way, the BCH aims to close the gap between ‘providers’ and ‘clients’. The touchstone is the tool which the BCH has developed specifically to support the quality of remembrance education.
