Every year, the Verdun Memorial Museum welcomes thousands of schoolchildren from across Europe and the museum has very close ties with the French Education Department. The Learning Resource Centre, which enjoys strong support from the Inspection générale d’histoire-géographie and the DAAC (Délégation académique à l’éducation artistique et à l’action culturelle), is well-known for its programmes and events. More and more of them are based on a multidisciplinary approach.
The museum set up its Learning Resource Centre in the 1970s. Nowadays, the Nancy-Metz Education District seconds two teachers to the museum and they work here in addition to their work in schools in Lorraine:
• Jérôme Dumont, French and History teacher, senior high school level
• Nicolas Czubak, History and Geography teacher, junior high school level
