Educational Kit


This educational unit deals with a unique document that portrays the story of one transport arriving at Auschwitz-Birkenau in the spring of 1944. The unit introduces the teacher to the use of photographs as historical documents that, together with additional sources such as letters and testimonies, help create a comprehensive view of a certain historical event. Using these sources, the student will learn about the “Final Solution” and its process, and how Auschwitz-Birkenau served not only as an extermination camp for the majority of its arrivals but also as a concentration camp for those selected to work. In keeping with Yad Vashem’s educational philosophy, the victims’ individual and human qualities are emphasized.
