PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The 17 slide PowerPoint and lesson focuses on one essential question regarding the Holocaust--who is the most responsible: perpetrators, victims, or bystanders?

To help guide them in their questioning, students will first read a summary of the tragic SS St. Louis Voyage.

Students will then read two poems: “To the Little Polish Boy Standing with His Arms Up” by Peter L. Fischl and “Refugee Blues” by W. H. Auden.

Discussion questions for each poem are provided on the PowerPoint. The poems and questions are also included on a word document.

Students will be able to hear an audio of the poem by Fischl.

For the last activity, students will view two very powerful images during the Holocaust.

Students are to respond to an image of their choice in a poem.

Students really enjoy this lesson and I have received some awesome poetic response that I usually hang on the walls for others to enjoy.
