Students read about the liberation of the concentration camp Majdanek during World War 2 from the perspective of a journalist and answer 10 questions of varying degrees of difficulty. This would be great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate.
Sample questions include:
-What was the difference between a concentration and death camp?
-Why did the BBC refuse to air Werth's story on the liberation of Majdanek?
-How did those who were brought to Majdanek die? Why do you think that was the chosen method of execution rather than shooting, hanging, guillotine, or another means of killing?
-Summarize Werth's reaction to Majdanek. You must write at least 5 complete sentences.
