Speaker: Juan Castellanos
What is the relationship between war and war crimes? How does our understanding of World War II change when we confront the history of the war between Japan and China?
In this professional development workshop from Facing History and Ourselves, we will introduce Facing History’s resource The Nanjing Atrocities: Crimes of War, which details the events unfolding in China and Japan in the years leading up to World War II in East Asia, and the Japanese occupation of the city of Nanjing, China, in 1937. We will examine the choices individuals and groups make in the midst of war and issues of judgment and accountability during episodes of collective violence and in their aftermath.
Recommended for 10th-12th grade history, social science, or humanities teachers.
In this workshop you will:
· Discover new interdisciplinary teaching strategies that reinforce historical and literacy skills
· Receive a free copy of The Nanjing Atrocities: Crimes of War
