In Conversation: Teaching The Nanjing Atrocities: Crimes of War

The New-York Historical Society will be in conversation with Facing History and Ourselves for a look at the Japanese occupation of the city of Nanjing, China, in 1937- 38, an essential but often overlooked history of World War II and of an international war crime.

Facing History and Ourselves will introduce its teaching resource The Nanjing Atrocities: Crimes of War, which details the Japanese occupation of the city of Nanjing, China, in 1937-38.

During the conversation we will:

  • Introduce the complex and challenging history of the Japanese occupation of Nanjing during World War II
  • Consider how we teach difficult histories, such as the atrocities committed in Nanjing
  • Consider the legacies of this history and why it is an important history to teach
 

Participants will receive 1 CTLE hour. Please direct any questions about the event to [email protected]

This workshop will be held via Zoom. Details for joining the Zoom meeting will be shared by email the day before the event.
