This workshop introduces Facing History's new resource, The Nanjing Atrocities: Crimes of War, which details the events unfolding in China and Japan in the years leading up to World War II in East Asia, and the Japanese occupation of the city of Nanjing, China, in 1937.
We will examine the choices individuals and groups make in the midst of war and issues of judgment and accountability during episodes of collective violence and in their aftermath.
This workshop is designed to introduce teachers to new content and methodologies that help young people to become more engaged, compassionate and global citizens. While this history is not directly in the school curriculum, History, English and Life Orientation teachers will find the methodologies useful and will explore ways of bringing this story into their teaching.
We have partnered with the South African Holocaust and Genocide Foundation for this workshop series.
