A very interesting lesson that has students research some of the senior Nazi figures who supported Hitler and also profile several Germans who chose to stand up to Hitler.
- A 10 minute clip of the Nazi propaganda film, "Triumph of the Will." This works for very well as a "hook" for the lesson.
- A 6-page Activities Package:
Activity One - Students research 6 key Nazi figures.
Activity Two - Students profile 2 Germans and one German group who opposed Hitler
Activity Three - Movie review of "Downfall." Great movie that shows the last 48 hours of Hitler's life. The Nazi figures in Activity One appear in the movie.
