In the fall of 2016, Facing History and Ourselves launched a major revision of our seminal case study, Holocaust and Human Behavior. Holocaust scholarship, along with the fields of human behavior—including neuroscience and the psychology of bias and prejudice—have changed dramatically since the last revision of this work 20 years ago. Facing History worked with leading scholars and esteemed institutions in the U.S. and across Europe to ensure that our content reflects the latest research and thinking.

In today’s world, questions of how best to build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever. This book study group will allow participants to wrestle with the profound moral questions raised by this history and its echoes in today’s world.
