Holocaust Memorial Day - Teaching Resources
The 27 January marks the liberation day of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.
In the years since, this date has become internationally recognised as the day we remember the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust, and the millions of other innocents killed under the Nazi regime. We also take time to remember the lives lost in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
This collection of teaching resources for both primary and secondary classrooms might help you mark this day with your class.
Below you will find stories of persecution, escape and survival in Nazi occupied Europe.
Due to the sensitive nature of the subject matter, we strongly advise teacher viewing before watching with your pupils.
