About Facing History

Facing History and Ourselves is a national educational organization whose mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in civic education that encourages the skills, promotes the values, and fosters the ideals needed to sustain a democratic society. Teaching is a craft. Facing History believes that good teaching is informed by the intellectual demands of a discipline, the needs of a community, and the capacity of students to be moral philosophers. Facing History believes that the study of history is a moral enterprise. By studying the historical development of the Holocaust and other instances of collective violence, students learn to combat prejudice with compassion, indifference with ethical participation, myth and misinformation with knowledge. Facing History provides interdisciplinary programs, resources and speakers for middle and high school educators that relate the past to the world today. Because no child or classroom exists in isolation, Facing History involves the community: parents, teachers, police officers, community activists and other citizens. Each is a potential educator and role model. Facing History and Ourselves is a curriculum that honors duality: process and product, head and heart, history and ethics.
