The Tragedies and Heroes of the Holocaust in Poland and Hungary. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 1998 (Hungary/Poland).
This curriculum unit is designed to teach students how the Holocaust differed in Hungary, what conditions were like at the largest extermination camp (Auschwitz-Birkenau), and about people who risked their lives to save Hungarian and Polish Jews. The unit notes that students should already be acquainted with the rise of anti-Semitism in Germany and the progression of the Holocaust in countries captured by the Nazis early in World War 2, in particular, Poland. Strategies for teaching the unit include slide presentations, individual and cooperative student presentations, discussion questions, lectures, and assessment questions. The unit is comprised of the following three lessons: (1) "Background of Holocaust in Hungary"; (2) "Conditions in Auschwitz"; and (3) "Common People Who Made a Difference, Heroes of the Holocaust in Poland and Hungary."
