Our first ever podcast series, ‘Learning from Genocide’ features in-depth testimonies and experiences of people directly affected by the Holocaust, Nazi persecution of other groups, and the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur.
There is always a set of circumstances which occur or which are created to build the climate in which genocide can take place. In this video we explain the ten stages of genocide, as developed by Gregory H Stanton, President of Genocide Watch.
This set of six worksheets introduces secondary school teachers and students to six different genocides through a key date, the experiences of one person, and the story of one artefact. It can also be used in a non-school environment.
The Babi Yar massacre, starting on 29 September 1941, devastated the Jewish community of Kiev and marked one of the deadliest single operations during the Holocaust.
