Offers a comprehensive treatment of Holocaust education, blending introductory material, broad perspectives and practical teaching case studies. This work shows how and why pupils should learn about the Holocaust.

"As educators, we must deal with the events of September 11, 2001 in New York in the context of the conflicts that exist in history. The guidelines and ideas contained in this book provide help for American educators as they look ahead to how this event and others like it can be covered in the curriculum. The nature of hatred and fear is manifested in many ways, and the Holocaust is one such event that we must never forget. The authors can help us learn from and use the lessons discussed here." American Secondary Education Reviewed in School Library Journal Highlights: "[A] thought-provoking collection of essays .This book offers a valuable contribution to staff development."
