Studying the Nature of the Holocaust

In this week's History lessons, Year 9 students worked to create a gallery showing off their Holocaust memorial work. Our students began their studies of the Holocaust in January to align with the 75th year since the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp at the end of World War Two.

 

Students studied key themes of the nature of the Holocaust including the gradual dehumanisation of groups of people, the establishment of an authoritarian state, and the design and implementation of the murder of many millions of Jewish people and those identified as not belonging to the Nazi state that controlled Germany between 1933-45.

 

Students were asked to design a memorial to commemorate this important period of modern History. They then displayed their work with an explanation of its purpose and intent for other Year 9 students to consider. The students showed remarkable reflection on both the events and concepts studied, including the display of highly impressive work, and they shared their reflections by leaving comments around the pieces they particularly appreciated.
