Abstract: The paper in question presents the role of cultural heritage as an educational tool for teaching refugee students. The study is a bibliographical research and presents the pedagogical approaches of cultural heritage in education and the links with schools in Greece and Europe. The aim is to enhance the understanding of all students for the important role of cultural heritage in interpreting the diversity of the "other" through a holistic approach. A second issue under question is whether public schools in European countries can, or should, foster dialogue between groups in multi-religious societies through different pedagogical approaches. The diversity of our students is the starting point for creating common cultural values in order to promote a peaceful common life and this diversity posed a challenge for this research.
