The holocaust memorial day is every Jan. 27th. and honors the millions who lost their lives or were affected by the "shoah" and Nazi horror. 

Here are some resources to help teach this in the classroom. It's a topic I think deserves attention by every teacher if they can tackle it. I went through school not even learning about this seminal event in history and I think it is all our duties as teachers to "remember" and bear witness, always. 

1. Larry Ferlazzo has a fine reference list of resources

2. See the attached worksheets and reading lessons. 

3. This great book is a must for the classroom, IMHO. Hana's Suitcase.

4. Here is my post about Holocaust Memorial Day. 

5. Viktor Frankl's video and this lesson (attached) - Man's Search For Meaning is a very easy lesson for intermediate/advanced level classes.

Night by Elie Weisel is a go to book about the holocaust.

I'd also  mention this site of photos of Auschwitz. Students choose and print out 7 photos and make up a story of a person at Auschwitz.

Students might also read one of these biographies of children of the holocaust and give a summary or present to the class.

This documentary really puts a human face on the holocaust. Memorandum. Brought to you by the excellent site of the National Film Board of Canada.
