Teaching about the Holocaust to middle or high school students can be a daunting task. How should you approach it? Where should you start?
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum provides guidance to help educators increase their knowledge of Holocaust history and implement sound teaching strategies. With these resources, the Museum presents an overview of rationale, methodology, essential topics to teach, and where to find authoritative and appropriate content. Included are: Guidelines for Teaching About the Holocaust, An Introduction to the Holocaust (encyclopedic overview), Topics to Teach, and selected survivor testimonies that illustrate those topics.
