Los Angeles Pilot
Holocaust Ed./Survivor Aid
Facing History and Ourselves (FHAO) creates classroom lesson plans that use history to teach students to be upstanders—rather than bystanders—to intolerance. They also provide professional development to educators so that they can confidently lead FHAO activities in their schools. With a new partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) in place, FHAO has a unique opportunity to engage 10th-grade World History teachers working across the district. With support from RPF, they will pilot a project to engage these teachers in an effort to dramatically increase the number of students who learn about the Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, and the moral lessons of these historic events.
