Virtual Student Talk: An Introduction to the Holocaust
October 18, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In this talk, aimed at GCSE and A-Level students, the Library’s Head of Education, Dr Barbara Warnock, will draw upon the Library’s rich and diverse collections of original historical material to provide an introduction to the key events and the main features of the Holocaust. She will explore the murders of Jews and Roma by killing squads in eastern Europe, and the transportations to extermination camps. The session will consider Jewish and Roma victims of the Holocaust and Nazi genocide, examine who the perpetrators and collaborators were, and consider the historical evidence that allows historians to understand the Holocaust.
This talk is suitable for those studying the following: GCSE History Edexcel: Weimar and Nazi Germany 1918-1939; GCSE History OCR: Germany 1925-1955: The People and The State. Edexcel A-Level History – Germany and West Germany, 1918–89; OCR History Democracy and Dictatorships in Germany 1919–1963; AQA History: Democracy and Nazism: Germany 1918-1945.
