Introduction | Activities | Resources | Home School Resources


The Holocaust is a broad and complex subject. While it is primarily about man's inhumanity to man and the ease with which people can be convinced to carry out the most horrible events; it is also about courage, compassion, perseverance, and strength in the face of severe adversity.

Learning about the Holocaust is important not only for historical reasons, but also to understand the depths to which society can fall, and hopefully to insure that nothing like this ever happens again.

The materials offered in this WebQuest provide a good basic coverage of the topic, but there are other issues to be explored, and there are many other good and in-depth resources available. To find resources in the library's catalog and on the Internet other than those listed here, try using the following search terms:

Holocaust            Genocide
Anti-Semitism      Concentration Camps
Nazism                Nuremberg Trials
War Crimes (World War II)
