A. Go to this website and view the exhibition on hidden children…
On a sheet of paper, as you go through the exhibition, write
down the names and stories of two individuals featured
in the exhibition. Record as many details as you
can about them, including country of origin, where
they hid, how they hid, amount of time in hiding.
B. Pick one of the
individuals that you recorded information about
while in the exhibition. While he or she was in hiding,
what was happening to the Jews in that country
who did not go into hiding? Do some research to
find out more about the larger situation in that particular
country. The Web site of the United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum is a good place to
begin. Then, create a timeline that chronicles Nazi
policies against the Jews in that country. Begin your
timeline from the date when the German authorities
gained control of that country and continue it until
the time when they were defeated or driven out.
At what point did your individual go into hiding?
