Dilemmas, Choices and Responses to the Holocaust

This lesson encourages students to explore the complex factors which facilitated the Holocaust by looking at the actions of a wide range of people who were confronted with moral and ethical choices during the Nazi era. In so doing, it also seeks to avoid simplistic judgements about human behaviour and to consider the complexities of terms such as 'perpetrator' and 'bystander'.
