Few topics in modern history draw the attention that the Holocaust
does. The Shoah has become synonymous with unspeakable atrocity and
unbearable suffering. Yet it has also been used to teach tolerance,
empathy, resistance, and hope. Understanding and Teaching the
Holocaust provides a starting point for teachers in many
disciplines to illuminate this crucial event in world history for
students. Using a vast array of source materials-from literature
and film to survivor testimonies and interviews-the contributors
demonstrate how to guide students through these sensitive and
painful subjects within their specific historical and social
contexts. Each chapter provides pedagogical case studies for
teaching content such as antisemitism, resistance and rescue, and
the postwar lives of displaced persons. It will transform how
students learn about the Holocaust and the circumstances
