Activity Overview


The Holocaust was a systematic and bureaucratic execution of over six million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, the disabled, Slavs, “racially inferior” individuals, and any other enemies of the Nazis. In this activity, students will create a timeline of the events leading up to the Holocaust. They should include any policies, events, and important people connected to this period of history and describe how they are interconnected within the Holocaust.

For an alternative to the timeline layout, have students create a timeline poster to incorporate into a presentation or gallery walk. You can add more than one template to this assignment to give students lots of options and adjust the instructions accordingly.
