The Holocaust Explained supports 11-16 year old students to learn about the Holocaust.
This site was initially designed by the London Jewish Cultural Centre to help you with your school and homework on the Holocaust. More recently the site has been adopted by The Wiener Library, one of the oldest, largest and most respected Holocaust libraries in the world.
By using The Holocaust Explained you can learn about the development of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi's antisemitic ideas from their beginning through to the Final Solution. Find out how and why the Nazi dictatorship built ghettos, concentration camps and eventually extermination camps like Auschwitz.
In addition, find out about heroes of the Holocaust, such as Anne Frank. See and hear the remarkable human experiences of refugees and Holocaust Survivors. Learn the lessons that can help us to prevent future acts of genocide..
