Lesson Plan on the Poetry of the Holocaust. Fulbright-Hayes Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 2002 (Hungary and Poland).
The poetry writing in the concentration camps during the Holocaust enabled some people to survive, not in the biological sense, but in the psychological sense because it helped preserve their self esteem. The goal of this curriculum project is to expose students to the Holocaust by reading about the tragedy through the poetry of the victims. The project presents 60 poems written by inmates of Auschwitz (Poland). The lesson plan consists of the following: summary of curriculum project; 60 Holocaust poems; short museum guide book of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps; Elie Wiesel student competition writing form; list of films and documentaries on the Holocaust; travel essay from "New York Times" travel section, "Auschwitz Pilgrimage"; Nuremberg laws; topics on the Holocaust; information on Yad Vashem; some Holocaust Web sites; and gypsies in the Holocaust. It is intended for use with students in grades 10-11. The lesson plan provides a description, goals, procedures, assignments, and assessment suggestions. (BT)
