This is the web address that will take you to your task and your resources.




Holocaust Project: All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. 

                                                -Edmund Burke

Research various aspects of the Holocaust using a variety of web sites that are available.  Below are some good sites, but there are many more.  Your job is to find out more about the Holocaust and present your findings in a PowerPoint Presentation.  Your slide show should answer the Five W’s – who, what, when, where, why, and how of this important and tragic piece of history.

Your presentation will be evaluated on accuracy, detail, and creativity.  You will need to include in your presentation several information slides, as well as a title slide and a bibliography slide where you record your sources, so keep track of the web pages you visit.

Your slide show should consist of a minimum of twenty (20) slides.  A good way to organize your information is to take a timeline approach and present your information chronologically by years (1932 – 1945)

When presenting your information, ensure that you answer all of the following questions.

1.       What is the Holocaust?

2.     Where and when did it happen?

3.     Who else, besides Jews, died during this time?

4.     What is the total estimated number of people who died in the death camps?

5.     Define the terms: scapegoat, prejudice, racism, intolerance, genocide. Please give good examples of each. (as they relate to the Holocaust)

6.     How can we benefit by studying the Holocaust?

7.     What does studying this topic mean to you personally?  Give reasons for your answer.

8.     Why is it so important to have freedom of religion and protect the rights of the minorities?

9.     How does the quote at the beginning of this assignment apply to this period in history?  Explain, using examples.
