Facing History and Ourselves

Nonprofit or community organization

Description

About Facing History and Ourselves: Founded in 1976, Facing History and Ourselves is an international non-profit education organization headquartered near Boston, Massachusetts. Our 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 and lessons 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.

Effective Teachers, Engaged Students: Facing History is a leader in history and civic education. Our published and online resources, professional development and support for educators, and community events provide opportunities for people of all ages to understand how human behavior and individual choice play a critical role in shaping society. We offer content and teaching strategies that promote student engagement, critical thinking, and deeper understanding of the lessons of history. Each year, we reach an estimated 1.9 million young people, and our website attracts more than 700,000 visits from 215 countries. More than 30 years of research has documented our positive impact on teachers and students.
