Midwest Center for Holocaust Education
1-2 class period(s)
Many students understand and internalize information more efficiently when they are able to visualize the history they are studying. The Nazis used very precise methods for processing people through or into their death camps. This exercise utilizes primary sources and maps to orient students to the process of arrival and selection at Auschwitz-Birkenau, adding location, direction and movement to the written testimony.
Our mission is to teach the history of the Holocaust, applying its lessons to counter indifference, intolerance, and genocide.
