Man's Inhumanity to Man: A Case in Point: The Nazi Holocaust. A Resource for Connecticut Teachers, Grades 7-12.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford.
This teacher resource contains readings, discussion questions, and learning activities on the Holocaust for use with junior and senior high school students. The materials can be used in social studies and literature classes. The developers believe that it is the obligation of educators to make youth aware of the widespread existence of man's inhumanity, and of possible encroachments on individual and group rights, so that the democracy we cherish may be preserved. The first section very briefly presents a number of examples of man's inhumanity to man throughout the ages. The remaining eight sections deal with the Holocaust. Topics treated include Germany after World War I, Adolf Hitler, the Third Reich, the lost culture of the Eastern European Jews who were destroyed, the "Final Solution," world reaction, and aftermath. Each section contains a reading selection, questions for discussion, suggestions for learning activities, and a bibliography of student print and nonprint material. A few examples of the learning activities in which students are involved include doing research, writing papers, listening to guest speakers, tracing the history of anti-semitism in Germany, and writing essays.
