Facing History and Ourselves
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.
Since 1976, Facing History and Ourselves has provided middle and high school educators with in-depth professional development services, curricular resources, and ongoing support for teaching history and ethics, with a particular focus on themes of racism, prejudice and antisemitism. Facing History's work is based on the premise that we need to teach civic responsibility, tolerance, and social action to young people. Internationally recognized for quality and effectiveness, Facing History partners with school systems, universities and ministries of education worldwide to bring classroom strategies, resources and lessons that help students learn that their choices and actions matter, and that young people can, and should, be agents of change.
