Holocaust study is like standing on the tip of an iceberg! The more you learn, the more you discover needs to be studied. Nazi Holocaust History represents one of the most effective and most extensively documented subjects for a careful examination of basic moral issues. A structured inquiry into Nazi Holocaust History yields critical lessons for an investigation of human behavior. Nazi Holocaust study also addresses one of the central concerns of education in the United States, which is to examine what it means to be a responsible citizen. Through Nazi Holocaust study, students realize how fragile democratic institutions and values are. That silence, avoidance and indifference enable the mistreatment and bullying of others in society and that the Nazis methodically planned the Holocaust and it became a landmark historical event in the twentieth century. For this reason, we have put together a six page, 8.5 x 11, tri-folded reference guide packed with information to assist both teachers and students of the Holocaust in discovering: Important vocabulary including 33 difficult terms and their meanings Almost three full pages of Who’s Who including killers, resisters, rescuers, and liberators Full descriptions and definitions of “War Crimes” and “Crimes Against Humanity” A full page dedicated to the Holocaust Timeline Nine questions to elicit and promote conversations on unresolved issues of the Holocaust List of Holocaust literature List of Holocaust movies
