Facing History's Holocaust and Human Behavior Online Seminar for Educators
This Winter/Spring, Facing History and Ourselves will once again offer our 8-week facilitated online seminar, "Holocaust and Human Behavior." By using the Holocaust as a case study, we raise profound moral questions about the consequences of our actions and our beliefs, and we help our students make connections between history and the moral choices they make every day. While the Holocaust was a unique event in human history, the questions remain universal.
--February 21, 2008 - April 16, 2008, or,
--March 27, 2008 - May 21, 2008.

"I could not have imagined 8 weeks ago what an impact this course would have on me. I am still processing some of the material. As an educator, I now feel as if I can give the subject matter the justice that it deserves. The vast FHAO resources and wonderful suggestions from our discussions will enhance my ability to make connections for students."
"This is the first online course I have taken and, quite honestly, I didn’t expect it to feel as personal and be as significant as it has been. Because of this course, I will completely revise my teaching of the Holocaust. What I was doing before now seems paltry in light of the new wealth of resources I have to share with students."
