The Holocaust: Prejudice Unleashed.
Rabinsky, Leatrice B., Ed.; Danks, Carol, Ed.
Young people can learn many valuable lessons from studying the Holocaust. They learn of the tragic results of apathy. They learn about tremendous acts of bravery and courage. They learn about the misuse of education by the perpetrators of the Holocaust. Teaching about the Holocaust is vital for educators committed to inspiring new generations to build a world of peace. This document is a 10-day unit that examines the following: the consequences of apathy; the chronology of the Holocaust; the culture of a people; the road to the "Final Solution"; responses to the Holocaust; and the meaning of the Holocaust in today's world. All lesson plans, content materials, classroom strategies, and student projects were assembled by Ohio teachers from their most successful teaching efforts in Holocaust education. Examples of students' poetry in response to their Holocaust studies also are included. (DB)
