Holocaust Youth and Creativity.
Clark, Joanna
As Holocaust study for youth becomes integrated into the U.S. educational structure, educators throughout the country are going to need resources that combine history and humanity to convey to young people the impact of tragedy and violence that World War II and the Holocaust had on the youth of a particular time in the 20th century. This paper provides teachers who work with today's youth with a clearer picture of how people of similar ages reacted to Nazism in Europe. A brief history of the time period is outlined in the paper along with an examination of personal diaries and creative works constructed by children and young people in Europe during World War II and the Holocaust. Background information on a wide range of literary and artistic genres is made available to teachers that will be helpful when designing lesson plans that modern young people will find interesting, innovative, and intriguing.
