WAVE continues its partnership with Facing History and Ourselves as we offer a six-week OCN accredited course that explores how we learn from history. Facing History and Ourselves has worked in 35 countries engaging students of diverse backgrounds in a study of racism, prejudice and anti-Semitism. Using material taken from the Holocaust and the genocide in Rwanda, as well as our own learning from Northern Ireland, course participants explore how we can learn from our collective past.
