Pre-war Jewish Life

This lesson forms an essential component of the introductory stage of Exploring the Holocaust since it helps students to gain a better understanding of who the victims of the Holocaust were. It encourages reflection on the richness and diversity of Jewish life in Europe prior to 1939 and reminds students of the common humanity of those who would later be victims of persecution and murder.
