This lesson plan for secondary school students will introduce your students to the history of Auschwitz-Birkenau, and share with them the stories of people who were imprisoned there. Auschwitz-Birkenau was the largest and most infamous of all the Nazi camps, where approximately 1.1 million people were murdered.
Our poster pack contains a set of six posters with information about the Holocaust and genocides that have happened since. You can download or order a free set to display at your HMD activity.
