Facing History and Ourselves


Facing History and Ourselves is an international educational and professional development organization whose 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.


Involvement in film

Facing History partners with film projects that align with key Facing History themes and content areas. Recent films have included: I Learn America, American Promise, Bully, The Reckoning, The Reporter, The Rescuers, etc Facing History works with films in a variety of ways: hosting educator screenings, creating accompanying guides, organizing educator workshops in person and online, offering films in our resource library and spreading the word to our networks.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
