This interactive workshop uses resources from the companion resource book Holocaust and Human Behavior and helps teachers develop a customized teaching plan informed by Facing History’s approach and the one-week unit outline.

    Democracy at Risk: Holocaust and Human Behavior for Educators in Jewish Settings

    In today’s global climate, the urgency of sustaining democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence is more pressing than ever. Studying the Holocaust and human behavior allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by this history while fostering their skills in ethical and moral reasoning, critical analysis, empathy, and civic engagement—all of which are critical habits of mind for sustaining democracy. This online course features the fully revised, digital edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior and is intended for educators in a Jewish setting.
