Resources to help secondary students think about the Holocaust and its legacy
Holocaust memorial day takes place on 27 January each year; the same date that the Nazi’s largest death camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, was liberated in 1945. It’s a time for us to remember those who lost their lives and reflect upon the lessons of the past. This year’s theme, “torn from home” focuses on the impact of language, exploring how words have been used in the past and present for both good and evil.
To help your students explore the Holocaust in a sensitive way, we’ve hand-picked resources that present the facts, guide conversations and stimulate deeper thinking.
