  1. Information poster: create an information poster about the Holocaust.
  1. Research project: investigate the life of a survivor, for example, Judith Kerr (who wrote When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit) or Vera Löwyová


  1. Debate: The picture on the right shows Jewish children just before they are told they can no longer go to the same school as other ‘German’ children.

Do you think children should be separated because they have different beliefs? What problems could arise if people only met others who had the same beliefs?

Write what you think, explaining your reasons in full sentences.
