Susanne Hillman. (2015). Facing Injustice: Video Testimony in the College Classroom. Presented at the Teaching Diversity Conference, UC San Diego. Retrieved from http://diversity.ucsd.edu/_files/tdc%202015/Susanne%20Hillman.docx

In this paper, Professor Hillman presents her use of Videotaped testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust, the Rwandan genocide, and the Nanjing massacre in teaching tolerance and empathy in the history classroom. She argues that "approaching the breakdown of equity, diversity, and inclusion within specific historical contexts equips students with the conceptual tools to recognize injustice and exclusion in the present." This method has cross-disciplinary possibilities.
