Racism, antisemitism, and other forms of bigotry—which were at the root of so much of the inhumanity of the twentieth century—have not gone away. How does learning about the history of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust educate us about our responsibilities in the world today? What must individuals do and value in order to bring about a more humane, just, and compassionate world and a more democratic society?  

Join Seattle’s Holocaust Center for Humanity and Facing History and Ourselves to explore frameworks, resources, and teaching strategies that empower students to envision the ways that they themselves might contribute to the process of creating a more humane, just, and compassionate world. Using Facing History’s pedagogical approach, participants will consider how our memory and understanding of history inspires and guides our choices in the world today.

Participants will receive resources, teaching strategies and examples of student-centered civic action projects that inspire students to use their voices, strengthen their civic agency, and choose to participate in democracy today. 

As a result of this workshop, educators will:

  • Explore our new Facing History resource on responding to injustice “From Reflection to Action: A Choosing to Participate Toolkit.”
  • Walk away with examples of student-led civic action projects that will empower them to take meaningful action in their communities based on the legacy of the Holocaust.
  • Learn a new way of structuring curriculum to help students connect history to their own lives and the choices they make today.
  • Practice teaching strategies and classroom activities that reinforce historical thinking and critical literacy skills.
  • Receive ongoing curricular support and consultation with Facing History facilitators.
