Our Cleveland office has helped more than 159,400 students connect history with the choices they make every day, and consider how they can make a difference.

Since the Cleveland office was established in 1999, Facing History has provided more than 2,450 educators with programs and resources that connect the study of history to lessons about tolerance, respect and civic participation today. These teachers reach over 159,400 middle and high school students in 294 public, independent, and religious schools across Ohio.

Since 2008, Facing History has deepened its relationship with Cleveland area school districts including Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) and expanded its in-depth schools network to include Facing History New Tech High School, Laurel School, Citizens Leadership Academy, Magnificat High School, Hawken Middle School and Hathaway Brown Middle School. In addition to providing one-on-one support to individual teachers as they infuse Facing History's content and approach into their respective classrooms, Facing History has also been integrated into an ongoing program within CMSD -- Facing History New Tech High School.

    Democracy at Risk: Holocaust and Human Behavior

    In today’s world, questions of how to best build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever. Studying the Holocaust using Facing History’s approach 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 features the fully revised edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior and is intended for middle school and high school educators. This seminar will be hosted at Tri-C Community College in the Jack, Joseph & Morten Mandel Humanities Center.
