This pedagogical activity is designed to support at-home study of the Holocaust. Students will learn about the impact of the Holocaust on individuals through the analysis of survivors’ artefacts and testimonies.
More than 9 million Jews lived in Europe prior to the Second World War. From 1933 to 1945, they were persecuted and 6 million of them were murdered during the Holocaust. The destruction of Europe’s Jewish communities sent unprecedented shockwaves throughout the world, reaching all the way to Canada.
The activity helps students to learn about the historical context and the different stages of the Holocaust. By analyzing artefacts and video testimonies, they will better understand historical events from a human perspective.
