Empathy is Vital

Posted by Liz Vogel on December 2, 2016

I recently sat down with comedian Sarah Silverman and LA Advisory Board member Jesse Stern. A few months ago, Sarah posted an image with Facing History's original resource book, Holocaust and Human Behavior, calling it one of three books that has most shaped her life.

Sarah has carried that book, now in two pieces, notes falling out of pages, with her since high school. In the video below, created by another Facing History alum and LA Board member Jordan Bahat, Sarah reflects on the lessons of Facing History. We're proud to call Sarah is a Facing History alumna and we're looking for others who have been shaped by this work. Share your story of Facing History with us.
