"Mr. Tuck had my son thinking all day about what he heard in school. He told me later that night about his one piece of bread in the morning and night. I am thankful for the hand out that was brought home, so I can read his story. This has been a priceless experience for my son, and I am so thankful that Mr. Tuck was able to visit. ~ A Perkiomen Valley HS parent

Professional Development for Educators


Democracy at Risk: Holocaust and Human Behavior

Germantown Friends School, Philadelphia, PA
July 10 – 14, 2017

Join Facing History for professional development that links history, literature, and ethics for educators in U.S. How is history shaped by hatred, indifference, and denial, as well as by caring, compassion, and responsibility? In this seminar, we will examine the range of choices that led to the failure of democracy in Germany and ultimately to the persecution of millions of Jews and other targeted groups. How did prejudice and racism destroy democracy and human life?

Participants receive complete access to:

  • educator resources, including downloadable Common Core-aligned unit and lesson plans, study guides, teaching strategies, and online tools
  • online lending library of DVDs and books (for all Facing History case studies)
  • individualized coaching and support from a Facing History staff member

In this seminar you will:

    Discover interdisciplinary teaching strategies and classroom activities that reinforce historical and literacy skills
  • Investigate the complexities of human behavior, judgment, memory, and how we as individuals and members of groups can make a difference in the world today
  • Receive a free copy of Facing History’s Holocaust and Human Behavior and A Convenient Hatred
  • Become eligible for ACT 48 credits by attending (and there’s complementary lunch every day)
