Persecution of jews - a timeline

Persecution of jews - a timeline

Used with my yr9 CLIL group, this works well as part of the Bystanders lesson. Print off the strips and give to pupils at the front to hold. There then ensues a (very heated) discussion when pupils are asked to rank each event from worst to least worst. Great for giving students the 'bigger picture' about persecution of Jews worldwide.

Holocaust - taking responsibility

Holocaust - taking responsibility

This is from something I saw at the Imperial War Museum, I've simplified and put into German. Students are given the cut out sheet of those involved with the Holocaust. They then work in groups to decide whether or not the person / group mentioned are guilty and place them on the sheet accordingly. The more guilty, the nearer to the bullseye they go. Excellent for provoking discussion! Used with my yr9 CLIL group.
