Berdichev: One of the Untold Stories… - A Learning Environment

Grades: For high-school students, ages 17-18

In the following educational environment, we offer you a model of teaching a complex and morally difficult subject – that of the history of the Holocaust in the occupied Soviet territories. This subject is presented in more detail and in further depth on the "The Untold Stories" project website.

The environment will focus on the specific story of the city of Berdichev Ukraine. Through the example of one city and one community, the key stages of the development of the “Final Solution of the Jewish Question” in the former Soviet Union will be examined. Materials from "The Untold Stories" site and from additional sources will be used.
