World War II and the Nazi Hunters
World War II in Europe, the Holocaust, and the capture of former Nazi Leaders. #academic
US Grade 8 - 11
The youth history book entitled, Nazi Hunters, provided the outline for this course, but it's not required reading for the class. Meeting one will provide of overview of World War II in Europe, the Nazis, Hitler's Final Solution and the Holocaust. The second lesson will focus specifically on Nazi Hunters such as Simon Wiesenthal, and the quest to capture high-profile Nazi war criminal, Adolph Eichmann. The course will meet two times. My teaching style uses slides, short video clips,...

This course will provide a high-level overview of World War II in Europe with specific emphasis on Germany's role in the war, and their actions that lead to the Holocaust and the D-Day Invasion of Europe by the Allies. The focus will narrow to the hunt for Nazi War criminals, specifically Adolph Eichmann by the Nazi Hunters such as Simon Wiesenthal.
I wrote a history book about a Japanese American church congregration in the Los Angeles area and interviewed families who had been forcibly removed during World War II. Though it's not as difficult a subject as the Holocaust, there were some similarities, such as the loss of civil and human rights, and the physical camps themselves. In addition to this experience, I have taught college history for four years, and I have dealt with a number of controversial or difficult topics in this context. I will exercise discretion in presenting difficult or traumatic events in history.

This is terribly upsetting subject that will not be right for every learner. We will discuss Hitler's Final Solution, Concentration Camps, and mass death of Jews. This will be handled as sensitively as is possible, but parents please be warned that the content is difficult. As far as images go, there are supplemental sources that show clips of concentration camp victims (History.com, Biography.com, etc), but we won't plan to look at disturbing images much of the time in class. Something like 75 percent of American students don't know this information or doubt the veracity of the facts, so it is vital that this subject be taught, but it is not right for everyone, depending their sensitivities.
The main content for the class and the outline will come from The Nazi Hunters book, but I also use History.com, Biography.com, PBS, Smithsonian, and and other reputable sources for video clips to enhance the learning experience.
