Curriculum & Three Week Lesson Plan
- All are welcome to join us in our course providing information regarding the Holocaust, Hitler, and World War II
- Students taking the course will complete a Memorial Project during the course in order to better their understanding of the event.
- The model represents the transportation given in order to arrive at the camps. Most of the time, these carts were packed with people. Without heating, travelers were often burdened by the snow and cold air around them, with minimal protection. The people being transported in these carts also had to go about the journey with no food, leaving them to starve for days.
- We chose to create this model as it represents some of the hardships these people had to grow through. These carts were also responsible for the death of many, having terrible conditions.
