WHY TEACH THE HOLOCAUST WHICH  HAPPENED
ABOUT 80 YEARS AGO?


THE

INCREDIBLE

STORY OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE


TEACHING THE HOLOCAUST IN TODAY'S WORLD
Yad Vashem 2017  11.10

Teaching about the Holocaust can be overwhelming. How can we provide a meaningful learning experience for our students in a limited amount of time? What is an effective approach to making learning about the Holocaust relevant and meaningful to students in today's world?

This Educator Video Toolbox is aligned to Echoes and Reflections, a comprehensive Holocaust education program that delivers professional development and a rich array of multimedia resources for middle and high school teachers. It sets forth the basic pedagogical framework to help you effectively teach the subject of the Holocaust, including teaching the Holocaust as a human story. In the center of this story are the Jewish victims, who lived in a world of dehumanization. We believe that when teaching about the victims we should teach about the choiceless choices that they confronted, as well as the instances of "light in the darkness" where their compassion and resistance were evident. Additionally, we should teach the human stories of the perpetrators, the bystanders and the Righteous Among the Nations.

Professional development programs for middle and high school educators are taking place around the country; you can find one near you here.

SPEAKERS

Shani Lourie is a staff member of the International School for Holocaust Studies, Yad Vashem,
and its Head of Pedagogy.

TEACHING ABOUT NAZI PERPETRATORS
This video is part of the Holocaust Education Video Toolbox. For more videos and teaching aids, visit: https://www.yadvashem.org/education/e…    2015  (11.52)

In the video, "Teaching about Nazi Perpetrators" ISHS staff member Dr. Noa Mkayton broaches the difficult subject of the perpetrators in the Holocaust. Ms. Mkayton stresses the dangers in seeing perpetrators purely as other-worldy "monsters". Taking the case study of Paul Salitter, a German Police officer tasked with escorting a transport of some 1,000 Jews to their deaths, we see a fairly ordinary person, oblivious to the moral ramifications of his actions. In examining his depiction of the events, and contrasting it that of a Jewish deportee on that very transport, we hear and feel Salitter's disconnect from the human beings he is helping murder. In confronting the difficult questions arising from this case - questions we can't hope to fully answer - we deepen the debate over these issues, while encouraging students to be more aware of the consequences of their own actions. The materials discussed in this video are available on our website and in teaching units produced at the ISHS.

Dr. Noa Mkayton is a staff member at the International School for Holocaust Studies, Yad Vashem.

RENA FINDER'S MESSAGE TO YOUNG PEOPLE
Marc Skvirsky,  Facing History and Ourselves
2018 (1.09)

Rena Finder, a Holocaust survivor rescued by Oskar Schindler, offers a message to young people about their power to make the world a better place.

Before the war, the Germans Rena knew were so normal; they were doctors and lawyers, fathers and sons. But after these same men marched through Krakow with their tanks and rifles, they quickly stripped away basic freedoms from Jewish people.

She couldn’t imagine that these “normal” people could be so cruel. But she was wrong, and she only survived the war because of Oskar Schindler.

As Rena told the Jewish Journal recently, what she sees today feels too familiar:

“For the first time, I am scared for the future of my children, of my grandchildren … we cannot be silent … Everybody should rise up and become an upstander ...
If it were not for Oskar Schindler, who was an upstander … I wouldn’t have survived.
One person can make a difference.”

The message is clear: The choices we make today will create the history of tomorrow, and we can speak up and bring positive change into the world — or we can stay silent and be bystanders to history.

THE SEARCH FOR HUMANITY IN THE HOLOCAUST
Karen Pollock MBE,  TEDxDurhamUniversity, 2016 (14.24)

The Holocaust is the darkest episode in our shared history. The horrors and brutality that faced the Jews of Europe was unprecedented, and defies human understanding. 6 million men, women and children were murdered, while the world looked on. It changed the landscape of Europe, and irrevocably changed our understanding of man’s capacity for inhumanity.

But during the Holocaust there were also examples of the best of humanity – men and women who, against desperate odds, in the face of the gravest danger, risked their own lives to save others, often complete strangers. While others chose to participate, collaborate, or stand-by as the Nazis exterminated Jews across the continent, they chose to act to make a difference.

Karen Pollock is the Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust.
