The Holocaust

Price: £45.00

An activity-based teaching resource that handles the very difficult topic of the Holocaust in a sensitive way.

Topics include: Jews in the Middle Ages; Pogroms; Mein Kampf; Nazi legislation and persecution in the 1930s; Kindertransport; Anti-semitism; Ghettos; Einsatzgruppen; The Final Solution; AKTION; Concentration camps; Hidden children; Anne Frank; Partisans; Rescuers; Hungarian Jews; Death marches; Liberation; Short and long term consequences.
