    We are going to start a new Amplify unit called Holocaust: Memory & Meaning. This unit focuses on events that occured in Germany and other places in Europe from 1932-1945 which lead to the genocide (deliberate killing) against Jewish people and other targeted groups. 

     The materials we will read and analyze present events from several different perspectives; perpetrators, survivors, victims, bystanders, and witnesses. As we move through the unit we will develop an understanding of the strategies Nazis used to influence the mindset of a nation, and the human responses to the unfolding of genocide.

     Two key questions we will explore include:

    1. How do a society and its people become participants in such an atrocity?

    2. What is the responsibility of those who experienced, witnessed, participated in, or who now learn about these events?
