"But I Still Don't Get Why the Jews": Using Cause and Change to Answer Pupils' Demand for an Overview of Antisemitism
Jackson, Darius
Teaching History, n153 p11-17 Dec 2013
Research by the Centre for Holocaust Education has suggested that students need and want more help with building an overview of the historical roots of antisemitism and that they often lack knowledge of Jewish life prior to the Holocaust. Darius Jackson has attended to these problems with a lesson that examines the context of antisemitism in two contrasting settings: medieval England and Nazi-occupied Poland. After building their own analysis of the causes of antisemitism in both contexts, pupils then situate this within an overall question about historical change, looking at patterns of change and continuity across the causes of both events. The model can be expanded to embrace other historical events and situations.
