Many students understand and internalize information more efficiently when they are able to visualize the history they are studying. This lesson is designed to help students understand the correlation of Holocaust events to WWII military events. The goal is to equip them with an accurate chronology but also to show them how the military war impacted and changed Nazi policy toward the Jews, how WWII in the Pacific may have impacted the news and information people were focusing on, and how long survivors remained homeless in the displaced persons camps following liberation.
