Facing History and Ourselves is an international educational and professional development organization whose mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry. By studying the historical development of the Holocaust and other examples of genocide, students make the essential connection between history and the moral choices they confront in their own lives.
Facing History aims to do this by offering a wide array of innovative online courses on history and remembrance. One such course, is the recommendable ‘Introduction to Facing History and Ourselves: Judgment, Memory, and Legacy’, the next part of which will go online on 3 February 2016. For more information about the full array of courses, as well as course starting dates and details of webinars, please visit Facing History’s event page.
