The Holocaust, spanning 12 years, is a complex history that affected dozens of nations and communities in a variety of ways. Teaching students about the Holocaust requires awareness of the complexity of the Holocaust as well as knowledge of the appropriate tools for teaching the event to different age groups. Educators should take the time to consider the historical context and content of their lessons and raise students’ interest in the questions of fairness, justice, and individual identity. Educators should avoid tailoring lessons and education materials strictly to the makeup of their student population, as this will lead to a misunderstanding or trivialization of the Holocaust. Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust has compiled a list of age-appropriate teaching tools, books and films that will aid teachers in effectively instructing on the Holocaust.
