Teaching Idea #1

Oskar Schindler was a flawed man who ended up on the right side of history. Did his flaws help him in deceiving Nazi officials? Research what happened to Schindler after the war. What do you think causes some people to risk their own personal safety to help others in grave danger?

Teaching Idea #2

The U.S. Holocaust Museum and many other organizations have recorded firsthand accounts from Holocaust survivors. Visit their website and watch one of these videos to learn more about the Holocaust in their own words of someone who lived through the atrocity.
