How is history shaped by hatred, indifference, and denial, as well as by caring, compassion, and responsibility? Using Facing History’s interdisciplinary approach to citizenship education, we will examine the range of choices that led to the failure of democracy in Germany and ultimately to the persecution of millions of Jews and other targeted groups. We will move from thought to judgment to participation as we confront the moral questions inherent in a study of violence, racism, antisemitism and bigotry.
This is a unique seminar, utilizing both online modules and face-to-face in an explicitly designed “humanized” online experience. (Click here to learn more about what we mean by that, and watch the video above!) Participants will come together from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. June 15-17 and again the evening of June 23.
