Please do not talk at this time May 19 HW: Thesis based on best prompt for Wed/Thurs. On a half sheet (please share with a friend) answer this question: Why do we study the Holocaust? • It is the single most completely documented Genocide in history. We can clearly trace cause and effect. • The techniques developed to spread hate in this case can be used by any group at any time against any one to a similar effect when people don’t know how to tell they are being manipulated. • It is important to understand that desperate people often choose extreme solutions to survive. Knowing this, we can guard whole populations by treating the desperation instead of the extreme solution. • This can, and has, happened again. Knowing what to look for will help us prevent similar catastrophes.
Review the Conditions that lead to Genocide: 1. Minority group considered “outsider,” and labeled “scum”, etc. to dehumanize the minority group. This is just like Demonization in Propaganda. It is acceptable to attack or kill that which is not human. 2. Racist ideology and propaganda (ie. Extreme Nationalism) 3. Strong dependence on military and military security (often combined with Militarism and the idea that the military can do no wrong.) 4. Denied political power or ability to address problems within the political system. 5. National leadership has strong territorial ambitions and does not wish to share precious land resources. 6. Power of the state has been reduced be defeat in a war or other internal strife. 7. Possibility of retaliation for genocidal acts or of interference from neutral nations is at a minimum (ie. Punishment is unlikely.) Using your homework on Fascism and your book, find examples of each one from 1930’s Germany. Chapter 15.3 and 16.3.
How do you get away with murder? 7 steps to Committing Genocide. Today we will be looking at the specific historical examples of each of these steps, but it is important to understand the plan that Hitler devised to be able to get away with murder with a minimum of resistance. Step 1: Choose a Target- This group or groups must be a minority and easily identifiable. Step 2: Isolate Them- Separate the minority or minorities from those in power or the society as a whole who might help or defend them. Step 3: Terrorize Them- Fear is a weapon that steals strength and energy from the target, so they have fewer resources to resist.
Step 4: Remove Them- Out of sight, out of mind. The majority, already struggling with their own problems finds it hard to remember strangers they don’t see. Many will choose blissful ignorance if they are not faced with the reality of injustice. Step 5: Claim they are Criminals- Propaganda was used to spread lies that justified the evil actions of the Nazi Government. While completely false, many people believed these lies because it was easier to do that then face the truth. Step 6: Imprison the Criminals- Once Nazis had claimed the minority were dangerous law breakers, they insisted on sending them to prison. These prisons were the Concentration Camps. Since none of the lies would stand up in court and all the prisoners were innocent, trials were never held. Step 7: Execution- Nazis sentenced their prisoners to death as their “Final Solution.” By the time they implemented this plan, steps 1 – 6 had bled most (but not all) of the resistance out of people under Nazi authority.
Now sign up for a group on the board and get a packet. 1. As a team read the Colored paper TOGETHER first, then read as many of the other papers as you can. Divide them up and share what you find with each other. 2. While you read, record examples of your step from the reading. Be as specific as possible. When you read about resistance to your step, record examples of that information in the other box. Be as specific as possible.
Please do not talk at this time May 20/21 HW: Complete your Holocaust Monument and prepare to share with the class. Bring Materials to work on Final.

Monument Project-Design a Monument to the Holocaust In this project you will design a monument to the Holocaust and then explain why the monument needs to be made, where it should be placed and what it represents.
Procedure: 1. Now that you have gathered so much information on the Holocaust, analyze what you have discovered. A. Start your Analysis: Why is this Holocaust significant? How did it change or influence the world? Why should there be a monument to the Holocaust? What do people need to remember about the Holocaust? Where should your monument be placed to have the greatest impact?
2. Now design your moment: • Choose at least 6 symbols or images to express what is important about your Genocide. • Create an arrangement that sends a message or evokes the feeling you want people to get when they see your monument. • Decide what your Monument will look like and Draw/Sketch a design for it. Neatness counts for this part. You will be presenting this to the class. 3. Prepare an explanation of how your monument represents the Holocaust and what your symbols mean. You will share this with the class on Friday.
Which shape set is most appealing? Safe Dangerous
What is the emotional difference between these two shapes? Stable Unstable
What effect does tipping these shapes have on their emotional impact? It suggests movement like falling
How are these two images different in their emotional impact? Breaking apart Coming together
What is different about the emotional impact of these two sets? Threat Comfort
You can use the emotional language of shapes to help you design your monument.
You can design a monument to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust, or for a specific group that experienced it. You could make one to commemorate the struggle, the agony, or the resistance of the victims. You could also do one to the heroism of the rescuers or the liberators or to the decency of the average person who fought in large and small ways against the Holocaust.
