Product Description

This lesson allows students to be reminded of the Holocaust and determine a significant way to memorialize those who died. Around the world each year, Holocaust Remembrance Day is celebrated in many countries. This lesson can coincide with the Remembrance Day or can be included in lessons about World War II, the Holocaust or genocide. This lesson allows students to be reminded of this tragedy and determine a significant way to memorialize those lost in the Holocaust. The lesson begins with a warm up asking students why and how we remember those who have died. Next, pairs work together to complete the Background Reading-History of the Holocaust. Pairs will pause at each Stop and Discuss Questions to discuss the reading and answer comprehension questions. When the reading and questions are complete, students read a series of quotes about the Holocaust. Each student chooses a quote that they feel provides the most compelling explanation of the Holocaust and composes a paragraph that explains their thoughts and beliefs. Finally, the students will create a memorial individually, or as a class, to display to remind all of those lost due to the Holocaust.
