The Day of Remembrance of the Holocaust Still Has Meaning For Us Today
This will be a one time class that will go through a brief history of how Hitler and the Nazis gradually transformed the laws in Germany from restricting the rights of Jews and others to extermination of those unwanted groups.

Class will have a lesson plan and outside online resources to show how the Nazis used propaganda and the German legal system to promote the isolation and later extermination of Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals and others while the world looked on. It will also look at some steps taken after World War II to try and prevent genocide and other "crimes against humanity" through organizations like the United Nations and the Geneva Convention.
The course will cover some of the major laws by which Hitler and the Nazi party concentrated power in German until Hitler took over the entire country and other countries and began organizing for his "Final Solution to the Jewish Question."
I had six years experience as a social studies teacher and additional time spent as a substitute teacher. I have studied the period surrounding the World War and had personal family experience with the Holocaust as my father's family in The Netherlands had been sent to the camps, and my mother worked as a court reporter with the Nuremberg Commission after the War.
Students will be asked to review some of the online sources before class meets. These include some video sources with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Museum of Jewish Heritage and other source materials.
Student interaction. Their review of the materials including video presentations before class and contributions to the subject will be reviewed. If your child has read a book or watched a film or documentary about the holocaust, they can prepare a short (one paragraph) on the subject.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This is a sensitive topic for more mature students.
