Calling all World War II buffs!  We have a feeling you’ll be interested in browsing these new lesson plans:

Auschwitz Concentration Camp

Through an analysis of primary and secondary sources, students in this lesson will identify, understand and be able to explain the importance of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp as a major extermination camp in the “final solution”, how the camp came to symbolize the Nazi crimes against humanity, and how the complex is seen today by people around the world.

Fall of France 1940

Through the use of various primary and secondary sources, students in this lesson will identify, understand and be able to explain the Fall of France 1940, how the French army had been lulled into a false sense of security in the years leading up to the German invasion and how the German army used “blitzkrieg” methods to subdue the French in only six weeks.  

Drancy Concentration Camp in Paris

Through the use of various primary and secondary sources, students in this lesson will identify, understand and be able to explain the German roundup and deportation of French Jews during the occupation and the role of the Drancy Internment Camp in the deportation process.  Students will then take a position as to whether the French themselves must bear some responsibility for their role in the Holocaust.  

Operation Barbarossa — German Invasion of the Soviet Union

Through the use of various primary and secondary sources, students in this lesson will identify, understand and be able to explain the major parts of Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the Soviet Union, the objectives each part of the German army was given, and why the German advance was stopped short of its goals.
