Lesson Plan, Video, Unit, Other


Primary sources and lesson plans for language arts and history teachers to complement Alexandra Zapruder\'s award winning collection of diaries written by young people during the Holocaust. Some of the writers were refugees, others were in hiding or passing as non-Jews, some were imprisoned in ghettos, and nearly all perished before liberation. The diaries, documents, and lesson plans in this collection offer a personal window into the history of the Holocaust and raise enduring questions about human behavior. May be used in conjunction with the book or as supplementary to your own unit on the Holocaust.
