My students really enjoyed this lesson as it made all they have learnt about so far real.\n\nI mounted the Propaganda pictures up on some large card/sugar paper and created big inference grids that my 4 students could go between and contribute to. That task builds up literacy and higher level thinking as my students, with literacy and SLD find this extremely difficult.
These resources / unit of work looks at why the Nazi persecution of the Jews became more extreme from 1918 - 1945?
The first few chapters look at the status and position of German Jews in 1918 and then moves on to look at the Nazi rise to power and the propaganda, economic, legal, physical attacks on the Jews from 1933 - 1938. Each chapter is designed with revision and summary sections. I have also included some of my Smart Notes with aims, objectives, differentiated outcomes, starters and summary diagrams to accompany the booklet which you can adapt as you go along.
T he next section then looks at the impact of the war on the next stage of the attack on the Jews by looking at the forced segregation and isolation through ghettoes, which was followed by the work of the Einsatgruppen Battalions as the German Army advanced into the USSR.
My booklet then asks the question why did the Nazis then decide to move to a 'Final Solution' before moving onto the industrial methods and tactics used to murder the Jews through 'Destruction through work ' and 'special treatment.'
The final section or conclusions then explores some of the historical controversy surrounding how far the German people should be blamed for the persecution of the Jews.
