Teaching about the Holocaust and Genocide. The Human Rights Series, Volume II.
Adams, Clayton; And Others
Designed to assist secondary school social studies, English, and humanities teachers as they teach about the Nazi Holocaust, the second of two volumes serves as a continuing introduction to the concept of human rights. Building on the first volume, which dealt with the roots of intolerance and persecution and precursors of the Holocaust, this volume focuses primarily on the Nazi Holocaust and its implications for our future. Because the guide is not a textbook, but rather a collection of materials and activities about the Holocaust and other examples of genocide, the learning activities are not arranged in a developmental order and may be taught in any sequence. This second volume, beginning with Unit III, examines anti-Semitism--traditional, religious, and racial; Nazi thought; the Nazi rise to power; "The Final Solution"; perpetrators and victims; responses by individual institutions and nations; and judgment, justice, and survivors. Unit IV, "Implications for Our Future," contains three sections focusing on individual choices, group choices, and connections. The bulk of the guide consists of student handouts, including time-lines, photographs, readings, memoranda, telegrams, and other primary source materials. A bibliography correlated to Unit titles concludes the guide. (LH)
