This is an in-depth, literacy based Holocaust Unit. The unit is designed for a high school class who is studying the Holocaust in history. Students are expected to read and participate in activities related to supplemental texts (including Maus: A Survivor’s Tale), articles, videos and online sources. Prior to beginning this unit, students should have had some exposure to the historical events that lead to World War II and the Holocaust.
• Why is the study of the Holocaust relevant today?
• What are the common ties between children of the Holocaust and children of today?
• Does hatred still exist? Could such a thing happen again?
