How did the Holocaust happen?
Transcript of How did the Holocaust happen?
In 1939 there were 8 million Jews living in Europe. Between 1939 and 1945 six million Jewish men, women and children and other 'undesirables' were murdered in parts of Europe controlled by the Nazis.
The survivors story
How can we challenge generalisations about the Holocaust?
The main generalisations were:
• The Nazis were the first people to practice anti-Semitism
• Jewish people were the only victims of the Holocaust
• The Holocaust only happened in concentration camps
• People who did not take part in the Holocaust risked death
• Jewish people were helpless and saved by the Allies
• Schindler’s List and the Boy in the Striped Pyjamas are the best way of learning about the Holocaust
• We need to see images of suffering to understand the Holocaust
