Facing History and Ourselves offers an interdisciplinary
approach to citizenship education that connects the history of the
Holocaust, Rwanda, and other examples of genocide to the moral questions
young people face in their own lives. We provide middle and high
school educators with tools for teaching history and ethics and
for helping students learn to combat prejudice with compassion,
indifference with participation, and myth and misinformation with
knowledge. In addition, students can develop projects to deepen
their learning by addressing community issues, such as dialogues
with police, workshops to foster understanding between rival groups
in the school, service projects to benefit local or international
organizations, or leadership programs within the school.
