How is history shaped by hatred, indifference, and denial? How is it shaped by caring, compassion, and responsibility? Using Facing History’s interdisciplinary approach to citizenship education, we will examine the range of choices that led to the failure of democracy in Germany and ultimately to the persecution of millions of Jews and other targeted groups. We will move from thought to judgment to participation as we confront the moral questions inherent in a study of violence, racism, antisemitism and bigotry.

Recommended for 6th-12th grade U.S. history, world history, humanities, or English language arts.
