The Holocaust in Hungary and Poland: Case Studies of Response to Genocide. Curriculum Project. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 1998 (Hungary/Poland).
Hartley, William L.
This curriculum project was designed primarily to be incorporated into a larger world history unit on the Holocaust and World War II. The project can be adapted for a lesson on 'situational ethics' for use in a philosophy class. The lesson requires students to examine a historical case and to write and discuss that particular case. The project's lesson aims to get students to examine critically such issues as "Man's inhumanity to man"; and "How could this happen?" These issues would be framed against the backdrop of the organized resistance to Nazi occupation that took place in the Warsaw Ghetto in the spring of 1943. The project is organized along the traditional lines of a lesson plan, and includes summary notes, questions to be answered both in writing and group discussion, as well as references to several general works on the Holocaust. (Contains 15 references of books and videos.) (BT)
