Preventing Bullying through Holocaust Education


A number of social agencies – not just Holocaust organizations – are beginning to teach the Holocaust as a means of demonstrating what can happen if bullying is allowed to escalate into stereotyping, prejudice, racism, and worse. The DHRC is considering launching a Dayton-area anti-bullying initiative. Ideas from teachers are especially welcome. Cyber-bullying is a new and especially worrying phenomenon – through social media like Facebook and MySpace, kids can now bully other kids anonymously, and even recruit their friends to help. As you probably know, suicides have already resulted. Here are a few links to similar projects around the country.
