Canada responds to the Holocaust 1944 to 1945

This resource is a CD-Rom Powerpoint presentation designed for use in Canadian high school classrooms. The project has been timed to appear on the 60th anniversary of the end of the war, which offers educators a significant "teaching moment." The presentation is divided into four parts. The first is an introduction to the Holocaust, the second is devoted to Canadian soldiers' encounter with the Holocaust, especially in northern Europe, and the third examines two types of communicators of the event, journalists and artists (including Alex Colville, Aba Bayefsky and Jack Shadbolt). The final section deals with the information's reception on the home front. Each section includes questions for discussion, with additional notes for teachers. The CD incorporates text, photographs, reproductions of art, archival footage and interviews and is adaptable by the instructor
