Teachers' Study Guide: Writings of the Nazi Holocaust. The Image of the Jew in Literature.
Mersand, Joseph; Pawel, Ernst
An essay, study guide, and model instructional unit focus on the experiences of the Nazi holocaust in an endeavor to remind all men that they are survivors of the Nazi attempted extermination of the Jews and must deal with the knowledge that such an event could occur. Examined in the essay are both fictional treatments of the event and the writings of those who experienced and recounted the horrors of the concentration camps. The study guide for teachers presents (1) the aims for studying "holocaust literature," (2) classroom activities and discussion topics which clarify the meaning and relevance of holocaust literature, analyze the "guilt and responsibility" of the victimization, and draw possible parallels to it in contemporary events, and (3) an extensive bibliography of holocaust literature for teachers and students. The 4-week unit for ninth or 10th grade English suggests activities, evaluation techniques, and instructional aids. (JB)
