Product Description
First, a 2 page reading provides context and true but gritty details of Japan's infamous barbarity in China during the 1930's, as well as America's lack of attention due to other concerns and priorities. After the reading, I play a 9 minute video clip that adds more historical context (it is a good documentary, not a sensationalized re-enactment). Rather than questions about the gory details of this intense reading and video, I have discussion prompts about broader concepts: Could something like this happen today? Why do people and nations look the other way during some atrocities? It is an intense but important lesson.
