Impossible Choices: Life under Nazi Prosecution

This lesson builds on the previous one by focussing on the fate of the first Jewish community to suffer under the Nazis: that of Germany. It provides an accessible means of comprehending the chronology and human impact of the Nazi persecution of German Jews, prompting students to reflect on the difficult choices which families were forced to make. This in turn enables them to understand the factors which might drive someone to become a refugee and the reactions of the world to this crisis.
