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.
