This slideshow has graphics, video links, and an animated map of europe that shows the concentration camps. The purpose is to give students a brief but thorough background of the causes of the Holocaust and basic details. It is in no way a complete study of the Holocaust, but it is meant to give basic background information. Teachers can use this before reading nonfiction articles or before beginning a book study/book club about Holocaust literature. I used it before teaching The Diary of Anne Frank, the Pulitzer-Prize winning play based on the diary and can also be used before beginning any type of Holocaust literature.
