This educational tool was designed for the secondary Cycle 1 course in History and Citizenship Education. The primary activity engages students in creating a graphic novel highlighting the experiences of Jews in the Netherlands during the Holocaust, demonstrating how antisemitism and anti-Jewish measures impacted individual lives.
This educational project corresponds with the Quebec Education Program's objectives in the following three areas:
- Social reality: "Recognition of rights and freedoms"
- Elsewhere: Denial of freedom of movement and the civil rights of Jews in Europe
- Cultural references: Deprivation of rights and freedoms
Understand the Holocaust and Nazi ideology by learning about anti-Jewish measures imposed by the Nazi in the Netherlands;
- Make links between Canadian history and the liberation of the Netherlands by the Canadian army;
- Employ the use of historical information and artefacts in order to reconstruct the past in a credible manner, incorporating elements of recorded eye witness testimonies.
