Through an organization called Facing History and Ourselves, young people confront tough moral questions. What would you do if you witnessed an act of violence? When should you stand up against a bully or your government?

Students meet people who have witnessed injustice, like artist and Holocaust survivor Ava Kadishson Schieber (pictured here telling her story to students at Chicago’s Lyons Township High School). They watch films about homophobia and read first-hand accounts of refugees.

Facing History provides resources on history and values to more than 25,000 educators worldwide and runs a school in New York City, which just graduated its first class in June.
