Lesson overview: 

The Holocaust lessons were created to help students learn about the Holocaust from the testimonies of Holocaust survivors. Lesson 10 provides a glimpse of the after-effects of the experiences that these survivors endured and what their experiences should teach to all of us, and also some advice, such as  avoiding generalizing based on nationality or religion: judge instead by a person's deeds.
