Bristol Community College Library's collection dedicated to the teaching of global genocides.
The Holocaust and Genocide Collection’s mission is to engage, educate, and motivate state and local communities in exploring the impact of genocide on culture, memory, and history. This collection covers genocides from the late 19th Century through today and is updated constantly.
The goal of the collection is to encourage the adoption of genocide curriculum within all academic disciplines at Bristol Community College and beyond. To facilitate this goal, The Poisoned Path Project was created. The Poisoned Path Project: Teaching Genocide Across the Curriculum consists of academic resources bundled into digital and physical kits that faculty, staff, and the public can use to incorporate genocide themes into their classroom. This project is maintained by a cross-disciplinary committee of faculty and staff at Bristol Community College.
See below for a sample of the collection.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts recently passed An Act Concerning Genocide Education in 2021. Click here to read the text of the Bill.
