Crimes against Humanity and Civilization: The Genocide of the Armenians

Facing History and Ourselves.
Brookline, MA: Facing History and Ourselves, 2004.

Facing History and Ourselves is a national educational organization whose mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in civic education that encourages the skills, promotes the values, and fosters the ideals needed to sustain a democracy. For Facing History and Ourselves, the question of the 21st century is, "What have we learned about the history of collective violence in the 20th century that can help us educate students about the opportunities that individuals, groups, and nations have to make a difference." Crimes against Humanity and Civilization is the most comprehensive guide to the Armenian Genocide created for secondary education. The Armenian Genocide is placed in thorough context and is studied through historical facts as presented in primary sources from the National Archives, Library of Congress and with the support of prominent specialists in the field. And, like all of Facing History's products, once the student learns the history of the event Facing History has included readings and activities the challenge students to make connections to their own lives.
