High School Students-Do you have an interest in the Holocaust?
For more information, see Eileen in the library about a very interesting online class you can take with her for an elective History class. It is offered this summer and next year. It is a one semester class. Please read the description below from the Racine Unified Virtual School class catalog.
|Holocaust education requires a comprehensive study of not only times, dates, and places, but also the motivation and ideology that allowed these events. In this course, students will study the history of anti-Semitism; the rise of the Nazi party; and the Holocaust, from its beginnings through liberation and the aftermath of the tragedy. The study of the Holocaust is a multi-disciplinary one, integrating world history, geography, American history, and civics. Through this in-depth, semester-long study of the Holocaust, high school students will gain an understanding of the ramifications of prejudice and indifference, the potential for government-supported terror, and they will get glimpses of kindness and humanity in the worst of times.|
