The NY Times Learning Network has published a lesson written By Laura Tavares, Senior Associate at Facing History and Ourselves. Video from the Defying the Nazis is included. This topic remains so relevant, and we are hopeful that the blog will alert educators to the film and to resources to be used at the Moral Courage Conference.
