The content of the A Teacher's Guide to the Holocaust is presented from three perspectives: Timeline, People, and The Arts. The Teacher's Guide is meant to be used as a resource by teachers. Holocaust study is a very sensitive subject, and the appropriateness of material is dependent upon individuals. All materials should be reviewed before using in class. In order to help teachers with this review process, we offer the following guidelines for Holocaust study in cooperation with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.
