In cooperation between Yad Vashem International School for Holocaust Studies, Yad Vashem Libraries, Yad Vashem Archive, and Terraforming, a training for archivists and librarians from Serbia was organized in Yad Vashem between 4-11 December 2018.
In cooperation with the Yad Vashem International School for Holocaust Studies and Yad Vashem Museum Traveling Exhibition Department, Terraforming translated ready2print exhibition “How Was It Humanly Possible?” for use in Serbia. The exhibition deals with major historical aspects of the European Holocaust. In addition, focusing on the Holocaust in occupied Serbia, Terraforming developed a 6-panel-set titled “Some Words About the Holocaust in Serbia” that can be used as a supplement, or as a stand-alone exhibition.
Our project www.ester.rs is featured in the OSCE/ODIHR video among eight successful projects from around Europe to address antisemitism. The project is developed in the frames of the OSCE/ODIHR programme “Turning Words Into Action to Address Antisemitism”.
Professor Emeritus of History and Holocaust Studies at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Academic Advisor to Yad Vashem and Honorary Chairman of The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), Professor Yehuda Bauer, with the Terraforming team.
Terraforming awarded annual Yehuda Bauer Grant
The project “The International Library Platform for Teaching and Learning about the Holocaust” developed by Terraforming South (Serbia) is awarded the annual Yehuda Bauer Grant for 2016. IHRA awards this honor annually to an outstanding project proposal submitted through IHRA’s Grant Programme. The recipient of the Yehuda Bauer Grant is selected by the Funding Review Committee from among all proposals recommended to IHRA’s member country delegations for funding.
In light of its excellent quality, its highly multilateral dimension and efforts to establish an international cooperation using existing infrastructure among a rarely targeted group, it was decided to award this project with the Yehuda Bauer Grant in 2016
– the IHRA Funding Review Committee
We would like to express our sincere thanks to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance IHRA and to the Funding Review Committee. We deeply respect IHRA as the most important multilateral body that shapes international and national policies, and gives crucial guidelines and support in the fields of education, remembrance and research about the Holocaust. That is why this award is truly a great honor, and a major endorsement of our work.

Terraforming (”Earth‐shaping”) is a term from astronomy, defining the theoretical process of deliberately modifying the atmosphere, temperature or topography of a new planet, to make it habitable by humans.
But before we start changing other planets, we believe that it is our World that needs to be “terraformed” first, making it a better place, with more empathy and love, with genuine respect for human rights, equality and freedom.
We are trying to give our small contribution to that kind of "terraforming" of our World.
