    Democracy at Risk: Holocaust and Human Behaviour
    Webinar
    Online

    Democracy at Risk: Holocaust and Human Behaviour

    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 webinar, featuring our resource Holocaust and Human Behaviour, will enable you as a teacher to support your students to do this, using the Holocaust for historical context.

    This webinar is taking place at 5.00 pm GMT.
