Holocaust & Genocide Education

Teachers:  Colleen Bell

Grade Level: 11-12 Elective

Prerequisite: None

Course Description: The Holocaust is NOT an accident of history; it is a horrific, unprecedented human catastrophe. This course attempts to deal with the Holocaust and the Nazi assault on humanity. This course will cover the ideas and events leading up to the Holocaust era (1933-1945), as well as its legacy. Understanding the Holocaust also leads to understanding hate. Studying the rise of the Nazis and their extermination of Jews and social undesirables is an exploration into how ordinary people can be led into committing genocide, the ultimate horror in human behavior. The goal of this class is that you will learn the ramifications of prejudice and racism, and the dangers of remaining silent and indifferent.
