Welcome to the online educator workshop “Books of Conscience: Elimination (Cambodia).” Designed and developed by the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, a nonprofit educational organization, this lesson is open to registered participants. The Center’s mission is “to promote respect for human dignity and foster individual responsibility for justice and peace through education.”

Learning occurs when interest and the need-to-know intertwine.  Books inspire us to understand, empathize, challenge bias, combat injustice and promote social justice.  The selected books on the Cambodian genocide encourage reflection, development and application of those principles.  This course combines information from the Spiral of Injustice with focus on elimination and the ACTs (Ask, Choose, Teach) that promote becoming an upstander.  Lesson resources help teachers recognize how one person can make a difference and take action to combat genocide.     


Welcome to the online lesson component of the educator workshop “Using Diary as Historical Narrative.”  Designed and developed by the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, a nonprofit educational organization, this lesson is open to registered participants.  Reading Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl or Zlata's Diary: A Child's Life in Sarajevo encourages critical thinking and reflection on the first-person accounts that address the themes of human rights, injustice, hope and courage.
