Classroom Resource Package 2: The Holocaust

The Holocaust is one of the most notorious acts of genocide in human history and can sometimes be a difficult and complex subject to teach.  The many atrocities committed by Nazi Germany, before and during World War II, destroyed millions of lives and permanently altered the face of Europe.   The videos in our Holocaust Resource Package allow students to experience the Holocaust through the eyes of survivors, to hear their life experiences as Nazi soldiers took over their town, as they fled Germany with family members or took the Kindertransport to England, as they survived the horrors of a concentration camp, and learned the fate of lost family members once the war was over.  Get a glimpse into what it was like to live during such a traumatic time and then move to America to start a whole new life.  Hear their advice on how to prevent future Holocausts.  Videos in the package are complemented by lesson plans and activity ideas, reading lists and web site resources all designed for both classroom use and independent student investigation into this exceptionally important topic.
