Teach 21: Beyond Anne Frank
Through a series of timeline activities, students will gain an understanding of the complex social and political factors that shaped America’s response to the Holocaust, from Kristallnacht in 1938 through the liberation of the death camps in 1945. The lesson will also provide the historical context to accompany Ellie Wiesel’s Night or The Diary of Anne Frank.
