I am a human rights lawyer, who specializes in war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. The foundation of my field of work is the holocaust. I believe that it is essential to remember and understand events such as the holocaust or the Rwandan genocide in order to keep an informed citizenry who can recognize warning signs in a society and work to ensure that human rights principles are always maintained. These are the courses that I deeply love to teach as I am passionate about having a youth population that is armed with knowledge and the tools necessary to maintain strong democracies and human rights in our future.

This is a course for mature learners. I will never focus on exploiting the horrible facts of atrocities, as I want to focus on the learning and understanding of events. However, I also will not shield or sugar coat events as I believe it is important for learners to understand the honest truth of what happened and the factual basis of what human beings were willing to do to other human beings. Only by being honest and truthful about our human actions, can we work towards a world free of future genocides.
