Bundle Description

The Holocaust is one of the most important subjects to remember and teach. The Holocaust is a complex subject. Many students may have questions about this time period, such as,

  • "How did it happen?"
  • "Did Jews resist?"
  • "What was life like in the concentration camps?"
  • "Can it happen again?"

This unit study comes with over 75 pages of comprehension, discussion, and critical thinking questions. These questions are designed to get students thinking critically about the Holocaust. It covers four topics: how Hitler came to power, life in the concentration camps, Jewish resistance, and the righteous among the nations.

There is a lesson plan and extended resources if there is a certain subject that is interesting.
