The bombing of Dresden - was it right?

(0)
The bombing of Dresden in 1945 during World War Two was a controversial attack by the British and Americans. A perfect lesson for comparing the effects of bombing on civilians in Germany with the blitz or other bombings on Britain during World War Two. You may be interested in other resources I have uploaded to TES on the siege of Leningrad or other ways that civilians in different countries were affected by the Second World War. This lesson gives background information, access to source material by witnesses who were living in Dresden at the time, and then an active task guides students into an creating an essay-style piece of writing for and against the motives of the attack. By giving students brief statements about the motives and results of the attack, and asking students to actively categorise statements, helps students to see the difference between 'points', 'evidence' and then making their own explanations.
