This world map provided to you by the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education is recommended for middle and high school classrooms. The outcomes listed below will assist the students in meeting a portion of the Holocaust/genocide education mandate.
- Students will be knowledgeable of atrocities, genocide and the Holocaust which have occurred world wide.
- The students will be able to identify on the map current genocidal events and those that have happened within the past years.
The methodology may include using the map for discussion and/or for adding other sites where atrocities or genocide have occurred.
The assessment may include determining the student's knowledge relative to:
- Relationship of atrocities and time lines
- Similarities and differences regarding atrocities
- Understanding of those atrocities identified on the map
- Description and understanding of recent atrocities added to the map
Thank you in advance for utilizing this project and thereby aiding in the fight against the evils of bigotry, intolerance and prejudice, as they relate to the Holocaust and genocide, wherever and whenever they exist.
