Ages: 15 +
Duration: 1 - 2 hours
This educational unit is designed for students aged 15 and older and is appropriate for use in both formal and informal educational settings.
This study material offers a new way to study primary sources of the Holocaust. It is based on an ancient method of learning Jewish traditional text which is used until today in study halls all over the world. This educational unit is based on Study Pages that are inspired by the Talmud layout. The center piece is always a primary source defining the subject of the lesson. Around it there are several additional sources (texts, testimonies, art work, poems, pictures, documents, diaries etc.); these additional resources relate in different ways to the center piece, thereby allowing students the opportunity to unpack its multiple meanings.
The Study Pages do not cover the whole period of the Holocaust chronologically and are therefore not intended to serve as a systematic introduction to the history of the Holocaust. Each Study Page encourages students to deepen their insight and understanding of a certain event, period or topic from the Holocaust.
