Genocide Lessons Part I

The following series of lessons are rudimentary in that many adjustments are still being made. They are grouped by topic rather than lesson order as I do not always teach them in the same sequence each semester.

Lessons Introducing the Topic of Genocide

These lessons were shaped by the work of the Education Department of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, with input from Phil Holtje, former Education Director of the Holocaust Awareness Museum (NE Philadelphia).
