We learn about the Holocaust and genocide because they are important moments in history, and what we learn motivates us to take action today to put an end to prejudice, discrimination, identity-based violence and genocide. By the end of this activity you will have made a plan about what you and your group can do.

Suggested adaptations are provided to help you deliver this session in different settings.
