Video Documentary Worksheet: “The World at War: Genocide”

This worksheet is designed to help students get the most out of a documentary episode which is widely regarded as one of the best ever produced about the Holocaust – Hitler’s attempt to exterminate the Jewish people. The Holocaust is a subject which is compulsory to study in many countries before the end of Grade 8 because it provides a crucial – if unavoidably disturbing – example about how easily racial prejudice can take root in a civilised society and the devastating results which can follow. A study of the Holocaust also stresses how critical it was to rid Europe of Nazism and why the sacrifices of those who fought against Hitler in World War Two was so important.
