Humanising the Holocaust

Learning - A-level / post-16, GCSE, Key Stage 3

This session explores the roles ordinary citizens took during the Holocaust: Helper, Bystander, Collaborator or Perpetrator.

What motivations led some people to help, some to join in and others to stand by?  The sessions asks students what they would have done in these complicated times and to explore the difficulties in deciding which roles people undertook. Students will explore real life case studies of those involved in the Holocaust as well as exploring these roles through engaging with survivor testimony.
