The Holocaust

I’m not proud of the fact that somehow that it nearly escaped my notice that today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On January 27, 1945, the Red Army, conducting the Vistula-Oder Offensive, fought its way through eastern Poland and along the way liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp. In a time when Holocaust denial is actually taken seriously, and white supremacist thugs storm the United States capitol wearing “Camp Auschwitz” sweatshirts, now is the time to make sure young people understand this depraved moment in history.

So here is a reading on the Holocaust and its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet in observance and remembrance of this civilizational catastrophe.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
