Jewish People and Gentiles

Our textbooks have very little information on the Holocaust. Students are familiar with the impacts of the Holocaust in Germany and Poland but they know very little about Eastern European countries. Many Jewish people were saved and taking the time to learn about the Gentiles allows our students to see how different people around the world helped.

Bulgaria in the Holocaust

In studying rescue, the students learn about individual rescuers (mainly in Eastern Europe) and the challenges they faced. They also compare rescue on a national context, contrasting the Jewish experience in Denmark with that of most Jews in Poland, trying to determine the foundation for most Danish Jews’ survival of the Holocaust, compared to those of Poland.  The part of the lesson about Bulgaria stems from a reading the students have completed in advance, which mentions rescue in Bulgaria, Le Chambon (France), and Denmark.
