Facing History and Ourselves-Ontario Network

“For more than 30 years, Facing History has believed that education is the key to combating bigotry and nurturing democracy. Through a rigorous investigation of the events that led to the Holocaust, as well as other recent examples of genocide and mass violence, students in a Facing History class learn to combat prejudice with compassion, indifference with participation, and myth and misinformation with knowledge. We work with educators throughout their careers to improve their effectiveness in the classroom, as well as their students’ academic performance and civic learning.” –from their website

The main Facing History Website is found at http://www.facing.org/. They have a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/FacingHistory
