Teaching about the Holocaust

This week we observed the USHMM National Days of Remembrance, so to honor the victims of the Holocaust and formally introduce our final unit of the year, I showed a presentation to give background knowledge of World War II and the Road to Genocide. At the end of the presentation, I instructed students to head to Edmodo, where I had uploaded lists of victims from http://www.yadvashem.org/ . Students were instructed two pick two (or more) people from the list and put each of their names on a candle. Here's a free download of the template I used. Then, students put their candles out on the bulletin board in the hallway. The result was breathtaking, and I just wanted to share!

Do you observe the Days of Remembrance with your students?
