    Democracy at Risk: Holocaust and Human Behaviour Summer Seminar

    In today's world questions of how to best build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resistant to violence are more relevant than ever. Studying the Holocaust allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by this history and fosters their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement—all of which are critical for sustaining democracy.  This seminar is offered in partnership with the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre.
