Understanding how and why the Holocaust happened

Truth and historical facts have come under siege both nationally and globally recently. Now, more than ever, teaching history must be anchored in primary sources that provide documented truth and evidence of historical events such as the Holocaust.


Teachers are overwhelmed in the classroom and don’t have time to curate lessons that utilize primary sources, so we have done it for you! Lessons that are rich in primary sources help to bring stories alive through the words, photos, documents, and artifacts of the individual, while teaching students important skills such as critical thinking, historical inquiry.

“I have learned more through this class than any other resource I have read or class I have taken. The depth and knowledge in these lessons is phenomenal.”

Cohort participants will receive nine curated primary source packets with Google Slide decks for teacher instruction, student handouts, and worksheets.

The program includes the following class topics:

January 28: Judaism and Diversity of Jewish Life

February 4: Antisemitism

February 11: Rise of Nazism

February 18: The Power of Propaganda

February 25: Collaboration & Complicity in the Holocaust

March 4: Challenges of Escape

March 11: Wannsee Conference and “The Final Solution”

March 18: Rescue & Resistance/ Aftermath of WWII and the Holocaust

Cohort Highlights:
  • Experts teach Holocaust history and antisemitism with new content and resources 
  • Ready to use lessons for a eight-week unit
  • Students use historical evidence to analyze and draw conclusions about how and why past events transpired
  • Lessons align with new Minnesota Social Studies Standards
  • Be a part of a national educator cohort

These resources are generously supported by the Minnesota Vikings,  Allianz of America Corp., and the Tankenoff Families Foundation.
