Treatment of minorities in Nazi Germany/ prejudice.

Treatment of minorities in Nazi Germany/ prejudice.

A great lesson not only to explore who the different groups were that were persecuted in Nazi Germany but also explore role/responsibilities citizens have and how the decisions we make as individuals as active/passive political citizens can affect others without us realising. Will need the internet for research.
