This resource includes a journal reflection assignment that requires students to assume the role of either a Holocaust Victim or Holocaust Perpetrator. Students follow the lives of their individual throughout the Holocaust. Students are required to write four journal entries. At the last journal entry students find out whether their individual survived or perished. Then students create a final product by binding their journals together. I give this assignment to my students as part of their study of the novel Night and I am sure this assignment would compliment any study over the Holocaust. My students love this assignment.
Pleas leave a rating! I would love to hear your feedback and thanks for checking out my work.
