I've successfully taught a number of sensitive or high-risk topics (social studies) for students in middle school and high school.

This class covered a bloody and horrific event in World history.  It is potentially triggering for some individuals.  We will also cover the holocaust.  We won't discuss details about the camps (such as Mengele's "experiments" on twins) but there will be some photos of concentration camps and crematoria.
There are too many excellent books about World War II in Europe for me to list here.  I am going to mention a few movie/video options that are historically accurate:  Band of Brothers (originally on HBO), The Big Red One, Das Boot, Schindler's List (contains nudity), and Enigma (contains nudity) are all excellent movies or series that are very engrossing and all factually consistent with history.
