For high school students, who can be both impassioned and impressionable, the study of the Holocaust encourages discussion about prejudice and justice, shame and dignity, hopelessness and faith, and engages them in debate about the moral and ethical behavior of humankind. Introducing students to the personal narrative, fiction, and poetry allows them to hear a narrative voice recount not only the facts of this historical time, but also helps them understand the emotions surrounding the events of the Holocaust. The chapters on music and art act as supplemental material for lessons on the literature. By sharing their ideas, debating the issues, and researching the historical facts, students learn to find their true and honest voices and to listen to the voices around them. This resource guide's lesson plans and suggestions for writing and research projects are designed to reach all levels of academic study. Featured stories and books include "The Last of the Just"; "The Quay"; "A Scrap of Time"; Stones from the River; Seed of Sarah; Night; This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen; If Not Now, When?; The Shawl; and Maus. All chapters have a brief plot summary of the piece of literature and include analysis of symbol, imagery, language, and style and their roles in developing a historical understanding of the Holocaust years. Additional chapters explore the art and music of the Holocaust. The guide contains a select bibliography and research sources, glossaries, character lists, and suggested reading for teachers and students. A list of documentary and artistic films is also included.
