'Never shall we forget'
In this unit of study you will develop your historical and geographical skills by considering how historians and geographers represent the past and the present and the challenges that this creates. You will curate a focus within a gallery which is part of a year group exhibition to victims of the Holocaust and other contemporary genocides. The exhibition is timed to coincide with international Holocaust Remembrance Day which falls this year on January 27th, 2018. Below you will discover resources and ideas to help you through the process.
Introduction to the HOLOCAUST
In this series of 5 taught lessons you will learn about the Holocaust and the contemporary genocide in Darfur. We will explore the causes of genocide, how people were affected by it and explore themes related to the events that unfolded across Europe and the wider world between 1933 to 2018
Your task is to work in groups to produce a thoughtful and meaningful museum exhibition based around a theme. You will produce a physical gallery of information and thought provocation based around the 'Power of Words' theme.
