South Carolina Voices: Lessons from the Holocaust - Teaching Lesson Eight

Lesson Overview

The Holocaust lessons were created to help students learn about the Holocaust from the testimonies of Holocaust survivors. Holocaust survivors discuss the determination that was required to survive under the horrid conditions. They discuss the gas chambers, the starvation, and illness, and waking up with a corpse next to them. Some people would go to the wire (the fence), intentionally to be shot. The story of sisters being reunited, only briefly, is told.The goal of this lesson is to focus on the Holocaust experiences of South Carolinians to personalize the experience for students.
