Impossible Choices


This session uses historical evidence from the exhibition to explore choices, actions and consequences.

This session explores the impossible choices that real people had to make during the Holocaust.  The choices people made were sometimes huge, but at other times, it was the ordinary, every day decisions that could mean life or death.  For many the option to choose was taken away from them.  Students will explore real-life scenarios, developing their sense of historical empathy by putting themselves in those situations: what would they have done?  They will then examine the real stories and people behind those choices and explore whether that would alter their opinion or action.
