Holocaust and Genocide Why Does it Happen? by Centre, Nottingham Holocaust

This CD-ROM is designed to provide History, Citizenship and RE departments with unique coverage of the origins, events and aftermath of the Holocaust and features links to particular aspects of the genocides in Rwanda and the Balkans. It features: extensive coverage of the key issues and themes from each of these topics; a rich selection of source material, including audio files and video clips containing archive footage and survivors' testimony; student activities that are designed to ask meaningful questions in the context of History (and Citizenship and RE); and, thorough lesson plans that provide practical advice on how to use sections of the CD-ROM as the basis for teaching aspects of the Holocaust. All of these are mapped to the History and Citizenship programmes of study, and use aspects of the Key Stage 3 Strategy to promote effective teaching and learning.


'This remarkable CD-ROM's striking design is enhanced by audio accounts from three key witnesses to the Holocaust and events in Rwanda and the Balkans. Primary and secondary sources, photos and video clips convey information very effectively. The examples show that the Holocaust was not the only example of deliberate mass murders of other peoples. As events in the Balkans and Rwanda are not yet part of the history curriculum, there is an exciting feeling of learning new material. Survivor's testimonies make theri experiences very immediate to the listener. The information is structured clearly and logically, and encourages students to think about what happened in Nazi-occupied Europe, Rwanda and the Balkans and ultimately to compare the three. Teachers can use this product in history, RE or Citizenship classes to encourage thinking skills and knowledge and understanding of a very complex area of study.'

-- Times Educational Supplement 20040102 The resource promotes meaningful historical investigation, the realisation of the relevance of history to modern life, and the study of human rights. The whole production is closely linked to the schemes of work and programmes of study for both history and citizenship, and aspects of the Key Stage 3 strategy are incorporated to promote effective teaching and learning. -- The Independent 20041014
