The Third Reich in Perspective: A Resource Unit for Teachers and Group Leaders.
B'nai B'rith, New York, NY. Anti-Defamation League.
A brief history of the Nazi rise to power and genocide of Jews is contained in this pamphlet. The pamphlet was designed to supplement secondary social studies textbooks when it was found that most texts omit or skim over the treatment of the Jews by the Nazis. The document begins with a brief overview of historical content which the developers feel constitutes the minimum amount of information that teachers and students need to understand the meaning of the events in Germany that preceded and occurred during the Nazi era. Information is presented on unification of German states into one nation under Otto von Bismarck; Prussian militarism; social collapse following Germany's defeat in World War I; democracy during the Weimar period from 1918-1933; background of Adolph Hitler; Hitler's rise to power; and Nazi treatment of Jews. The second part of the pamphlet contains suggested learning activities and an annotated list of films and books. Activities involve students in word study, reading assignments, group and class discussions, committee work, writing exercises, role playing, arranging for and listening to class speakers, and audiovisual presentations.
