Examples of Best Practice 1. Teaching a Holocaust Case Study in a Post-Conflict Environment: Education as Part of Violence, Reconstruction and Repair
Murphy, Karen
Intercultural Education, v21 suppl 1 pS71-S77 2010
This article presents a brief synopsis of one example of the Facing History and Ourselves (FHAO) approach to pedagogy and in-depth study of the events leading to the Holocaust. This particular approach puts the focus on the decisions made by individuals, communities and nations who contributed to that genocide or, in very exceptional cases, resisted it or protected victims. The program described provides opportunities for teachers and students in countries emerging from mass violence to make connections to their own lives and histories as well as to the history of the Holocaust itself. Through in-depth study of cases of mass atrocity and genocide, FHAO engages teachers and students in a critical exploration of the steps that led to full-scale violence and destruction, as well as strategies for prevention and positive participation to sustain democracy.
