Having had the opportunity to visit Auschwitz a few years ago, I created this powerpoint to use as an introduction to the Holocaust. It can be used as part of a lesson or as an assembly for Holocaust Memorial Day.
It is setup as a slide show with a timer to change each slide after 5 seconds, but this can be easily turned off if you prefer. I have also included some notes on the first slide to help you explain the images in the powerpoint. You could play the theme tune from Schindler's list while showing the slides, which really adds to the impact of the images (please note the music is not included, but a quick search on youtube can solve that) and then use the notes on the first slide to explain a few of the images.
The powerpoint has over 40 images, with the automatic slide transition starting on slide 4. Please note there are no images of 'skeleton bodies' making it appropriate to use with 12 year olds and above.
