EduDoc+ is a groundbreaking new teaching resource for Genocide/Holocaust Curricula, now required in 20 U.S. States. The list is growing! While there are vast resources available to teach about the Holocaust that tragically claimed the lives of 6-million Jews, teaching tools for other genocides are not as accessible. EduDoc+ is changing that. We're developing curricula with a focus on Namibia and the 2nd Reich, Armenia, Rwanda, Bosnia, Sudan, Cambodia, Tasmania and more.
EduDoc+ is unique. It combines a full-length documentary with a thoroughly engaging, fully researched e-course for grades 11-12, suitable for in-class, remote or hybrid learning. It is also available to colleges, universities, Adult Continuing Education Classes, libraries and Historical Museums. When students connect with history and humanity, they can better understand their role in it. They'll grasp the value of empathy and respect for cultures other than their own. They'll examine issues of intervention and prevention. (AP students may be eligible for college credit upon course completion).

Eye-opening and mind blowing is how I would describe “Somebody’s Child: The Redemption of Rwanda”. This course greatly increased my knowledge of the history of the Rwandan genocide and sparked a desire to expand on this knowledge. Students will be highly engaged through organized lessons comprised of interactive text, quizzes, and a captivating film that teaches both history and the impact of inhumanity.

“Somebody’s Child reaches deeper into the Rwanda tragedy than we’ve gone before. This is a mother-to-mother account of humanity’s worst nightmare. Its professional, emotional storytelling captivates and illuminates an event the world is still trying to understand. Middlebrooks adds another layer toward that goal, and we are in her debt.”

"Somebody's Child: The Redemption of Rwanda" is a powerfully moving statement of hope arising from one of the worst tragedies in living memory. It's a gripping film that captures the soul and suffering of a beautiful people and points the way back to forgiveness for all of us.

“Given its recent history, Rwanda should be one of the most ruined countries in the world today. Instead, it is bursting with hope and enthusiasm. “Somebody’s Child” takes us inside the lives of ordinary Rwandans to tell the emotional story of how this country and its people—especially its women, have come to terms with the past and embraced the challenge of the future.”

“Somebody’s Child: The Redemption of Rwanda” is an amazing film that depicts Rwanda’s devastating past and shows hope for the future! It clearly outlines the genocide, what events led up to this tragic occurrence and what has transpired since then. This film, told from the hearts of Rwanda’s people, teaches us many important life lessons while looking toward a brighter future.”

“Somebody’s Child” is a moving and beautiful portrait of the incredible resilience of the people of Rwanda. Executive Producer Felicia Middlebrooks has given these incredible survivors of genocide a voice that they have long been searching for. After watching this documentary, you will be encouraged to join the movement to rebuild Rwanda and put an end to the consequences of a massacre to which the world has turned a blind eye for much too long.”

“Somebody’s Child is a sensitive and in-depth look beyond the horror of genocide, into the deep power and spirit of Rwanda’s people that rises out of the evil. Felicia Middlebrooks reminds us of a Rwanda too often forgotten and takes us beyond the stories and articles of yesterday, reminding us that life is stronger than death! It is brilliant, touching and not only shows us the surviving spirit of the Rwandan people, but causes us to challenge our own drive to survive in spite of.”
