April is also designated as Genocide Awareness & Prevention Month, and educators and students will have access to Modern Genocide: Understanding Causes and Consequences. This online textbook serves as a full, rich, and comprehensive resource vetted by a group of well-known, prominent individuals who make up its advisory board to ensure definitive expertise on the sensitive and complex subject of genocide.

Users have complimentary access to in-depth coverage of the ten most significant genocides in modern history and features to help guide students and teachers through this sensitive topic. The database fosters reflective discussions and assignments while meeting the academic curriculum and standards of many history and social studies courses.

“Teaching students about genocide is a challenging task for many educators, but necessary in ensuring students understand the price of prejudice and racism in today’s society,” Snyder said. “By opening our genocide resources and presenting a variety of authoritative perspectives, we’re making it easier for educators to discuss this complex subject material.”
