South Carolina Voices: Lessons from the Holocaust - Teaching Lesson Four
The Holocaust lessons were created to help students learn about the Holocaust from the testimonies of Holocaust survivors. Lesson 4 gives first hand accounts of the fear experienced by Jews living in German controlled territories and countries.By 1939, the schools were closed for Jewish children, the synagogues were closed, and the business were closed. Jews were not allowed to have any businesses. Getting food was difficult and had to be smuggled in. The penalty was death.The Germans took able-bodied men and boys for forced labor. Everyone lived in fear. The goal of this lesson is to focus on the Holocaust experiences of South Carolinians to personalize the experience for students.
