  1. This Fall, Facing History and Ourselves will once again offer our 8-week facilitated online seminar, “Holocaust and Human Behavior.” By using the Holocaust as a case study, we raise profound moral questions about the consequences of our actions and our beliefs, and we help our students make connections between history and the moral choices they make every day. While the Holocaust was a unique event in human history, the questions remain universal.

    Seminar Dates:
    –September 25, 2008 – November 19, 2008
    –October 16, 2008 – December 17, 2008.
