Facing History and Ourselves 

Facing History and Ourselves is a nonprofit international educational and professional development organization. Its mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice and antisemitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry.

By studying the historical development of the Holocaust and other examples of genocide, students make the essential connection between history and the moral choices they confront in their own lives. For more information on Facing History and Ourselves, visit www.facinghistory.org.
