Facing History and Ourselves, founded in 1976, in Brookline, Massachusetts, is a nonprofit educational organization whose mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism in order to promote a more human and informed citizenry.
The story of the Armenian Genocide and its legacies is told in Facing History’s resource book, “Crimes Against Humanity and Civilization: The Genocide of the Armenians.” It is a history that it is as relevant today as it was in the 1940s, when Raphael Lemkin coined the word “genocide.” It raises important questions about our own responsibilities as individuals and as members of groups and nations.
“Once again Facing History and Ourselves combines authoritative scholarship with brilliant pedagogy in a book that informs as it challenges… This book must be read by teachers and students. Even the best of scholars can well learn anew how to teach history and how to relate to their students’ lives from this important book” (Michael Berenbaum, former Project Director and Director of the Research Institute, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum).
