Educational materials

Educational materials

The presentation is divided into two segments: Introduction (to be completed within one school period of 45 minutes) and KL Plaszow (two school periods). The contents of the materials address difficult topics, such as death, suffering and genocide, and therefore are recommended for secondary school students or senior primary school pupils. However, the final decision is up to educators.

The authors hope that the information provided in these educational materials will give the students knowledge of the history of KL Plaszow. The materials are also useful in organizing educational tours of the post-camp area, making its features and characteristics comprehensible to young visitors who attended lessons on the camp.
