Facing History and Ourselves

right-facinghistoryFacing History and Ourselves, an international educational and professional development organization, is proud to be the educational outreach partner for the film, Worse Than War. Over the next year and a half and with support from the Einhorn Charitable Trust, Facing History will create classroom materials, conduct educator workshops, and host community events to accompany the film, helping it to reach classrooms around the world. Learn more about Facing History and sign up for updates (which can be done here) about Facing History’s work at facinghistory.org.

For more than 30 years, Facing History and Ourselves has been helping teachers and students make the connection between history and their own lives by offering content and teaching strategies that promote student engagement, critical thinking, and deeper understanding of the lessons of history. Through a rigorous investigation of the events that led to the Holocaust and other key moments in history, students learn to combat prejudice with compassion, indifference with participation, and misinformation with knowledge. Facing History reaches 1.9 million students each year through a network of 50,000 educators.

    I waited in vain for a mention of the Palestinians who are being eliminated by Israel through bombs, bullets, being starved out and made homeless, crops and livelihood systematically destroyed. There was no mention of the ethnic cleansing and extermination of Native Americans by President Jackson, with his forced marches, or the many times Indian villages were attacked by whites with women and children killed. No mention of the lynchings, shootings and destruction of neighborhoods of Blacks, Chinese and Mexicans, during the past 200 years. No mention that under the law of agency (US trained and paid soldiers) we are partners in the crime of genocide in Central and South America, the Middle East and many other places

    These omissions undercut your integrity, and make it easy to dismiss your efforts as fundamentally dishonest. .

    @ Carlana: From the section on Eliminationism:

    “During the period of Israel’s establishment in 1948, the Jews partly created the Palestinian diaspora by expelling Palestinians from their homeland. This coincided with many Arab countries expelling Jews beginning in 1948. “
