Facing History and Ourselves: Holocaust and Human Behavior. Bibliography and Filmography.
Drew, Margaret A.; Rivo, Sharon P.
Intended to provide a wide range of reading for students and teachers, including a variety of both literary and historical perspectives, the bibliography section of this listing of Holocaust literature and films is organized into six categories: (1) children's books and the Holocaust: an overview; (2) suggested reading: general reading, history, the ghettos, the concentration camps, Nazi education, Hitler and Nazism, the Armenian genocide; (3) German culture; (4) the legacy of the Holocaust: a supplementary reading list; (5) human behavior: American history, America today, human differences, and conformity and cruelty; and (6) myth vs. reality: literature as history. All entries are annotated. The filmography section, prepared to accompany the junior high curriculum "Facing History and Ourselves: Holocaust and Human Behavior," lists available visual materials under three headings: moral dilemmas, documentaries, and interpretations and dramas. Date of film/filmstrip, length, black and white or color, purchase/rental price, and the name and address of the distributor are noted, and a critical/descriptive annotation is provided for each.
