 "Germany is not alone in having had to navigate the transition from war to peace and from a society marred by hatred and discrimination to one striving for more democratic values. In the decades since the end of World War II, many other places—from South Africa to Northern Ireland, from Rwanda to Cambodia—have faced similar struggles. For a society that has been through a period marked by genocide or systematic violations of human rights, enormous challenges are involved in trying to achieve stability, justice, and peaceful coexistence. 

The term 'transitional justice/ describes a set of approaches that communities can use to move toward a lasting peace. Transitional justice typically has three key elements: ensuring accountability for crimes and atrocities, establishing truth, and fostering reconciliation. What does transitional justice look like in practice?" in Facing History and Ourselves: Educational Resources

 The role of genocide in modern history is an increased part of the History-Social Science curriculum in California, but it is very difficult to teach. This seminar will provide valuable tools for doing so in schools and community educational groups.
