South Carolina Voices: Lessons from the Holocaust.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Council on the Holocaust.
This resource guide is based on interviews with survivors of the Holocaust and those who took part in liberating them from the concentration camps in World War II. The guide is divided into three main parts: (1) overviews, (2) lesson plans, and (3) student handouts. A Holocaust time line, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated bibliography are included. The seven overviews in the guide provide a summary of topics related to the Holocaust. These short lectures can be summarized by teachers or handed out for reading. The overviews are intended to supplement the information in the students' textbooks on each topic and provide a background for teaching the lessons that follow each overview. The 11 lesson plans are designed to highlight a topic discussed in an overview. Each lesson plan contains a list of materials needed to teach the lesson, a list of key terms or vocabulary introduced in the lesson, and a three step plan for teaching each lesson. A motivational activity introduces each lesson and is followed by suggestions for developing the lesson and ideas for extension or enrichment activities. Most of the 34 handouts are primary source documents. They consist of interviews with South Carolina survivors, original newspaper accounts of events in Germany, Nazi speeches, and testimony at the Nuremburg Trials. Maps of Eastern Europe are included for a map activity. Overviews highlight the history of anti-semitism, Hitler's rise to power, prewar Nazi Germany, the Holocaust, resisters, bystanders and rescuers, and remembering and forgetting. (DK)
