I am a certified teacher with a degree in history and I have studied the topic of the Holocaust and Nazi Germany extensively. I have taken courses that are focused on this time period in history which has provided me with a thorough understanding of the events, people, and impacts that occurred as a result of Nazi Germany.  I am willing to answer any questions prior to the class about what students can expect if they are concerned about the sensitivity of the topic.
We will be discussing historical events that occurred in Nazi Germany (violence, manipulation, and control). There will be no graphic images or videos presented, but death, war, and violence will be mentioned in this course. Although this is not a course on the Holocaust, elements of the Holocaust will be mentioned to help students understand the conditioning of German citizens (propaganda, discrimination, oppression). If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.
