FACING HISTORY AND OURSELVES: HOLOCAUST AND HUMAN BEHAVIOR ~ Resource Book
By Margot Stern Strom
This resource book is Facing History and Ourselves' core publication encompassing our scope and sequence methodology. Based on the latest scholarship, Facing History and Ourselves: Holocaust and Human Behavior provides an interdisciplinary approach to citizenship education. Students move from thought to judgment to participation as they confront the moral questions inherent in a study of violence, racism, antisemitism and bigotry. The readings and activities explore the consequences of discrimination, racism, and antisemitism by holding up "the tarnished mirror of history" to one of the most violent times in world history—the 1930s and 1940s. As students read and reflect, they investigate the forces that undermined democracy in Germany, betrayed a generation of young people, and ultimately led to the Holocaust. In doing so, students discover that many of those forces threaten our own society today. The book then helps students discover how their decisions can make a positive difference in their community, nation and the world.
