In partnership with Asia Society Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Holocaust and Tolerance Centre, this free educator workshop will introduce Facing History and Ourselves' new resource, The Nanjing Atrocities: Crimes of War.

Using the multimedia resource, The Nanjing Atrocities: Crimes of War, educators will explore a rich collection of diaries, maps, videos, and timelines to place the Nanjing Atrocities within the larger context of World War II in East Asia, and consider the complex questions this history raises about wartime violence, justice, legacy, and memory.

Workshop facilitator, Juan Castellanos, Facing History Senior Program Associate, will model Facing History and Ourselves' pedagogical approach through various teaching strategies to create a student-centered learning experience when teaching this difficult but important history. 

In this workshop you will:

  • Receive a copy of The Nanjing Atrocities: Crimes of War
  • Discover a new teaching approach focused on student centered learning
  • Gain access to multimedia resources
  • Learn with other educators interested in teaching this important history

This event is presented as part of the Asia Society Global Education Series. The Hong Kong Holocaust and Tolerance Centre (HKHTC) is a co-organizer of this workshop.
