What happened to children during the Holocaust? Young people ask this question frequently when learning about this dark time in our history. Unfortunately, many children did not survive the Nazis’ plan for extermination, but the ones who did have extraordinary stories to share.
This eight-week class for girls ages 11-14 will begin with Jewish life in the late 1920s and conclude with texts and reflections by survivors of the Holocaust in 1945 and beyond. Learners will be provided some text to read in advance of class and other text will be read during class.
Lessons are taught using a variety of resources, including slides, lecture, videos, audio recordings, mini writing assignments, assessments of reading comprehension and reinforcement of the writing process.
In addition to reading texts from the mid-20th century and survivor accounts from the mid- to late-20th century, learners will practice their writing skills and utilize the writing process. Writing assignments will include keeping a diary, writing a sample news article, letter writing, responses to texts, poetry and a research paper as a culminating assignment. Students will be provided topic suggestions or may choose their own topic with teacher approval.
