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?

This workshop introduces our new 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.

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

After this workshop you will:
• Become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including downloadable unit and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia.
• Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost

CTLE hours available for New York State teachers

This workshop is presented in partnership with the Confucius Institute at the China Institute
