    STATION 1: ANTI-SEMITISM & ARYAN SUPREMACY **group**

    1. In Persecution and Emigration, read the section called A Long History in Chapter 1. What is anti-Semitism?.

    2. Look at the anti-Semitic propaganda on the marked pages in the books. Which image do you feel would have been the most effective for creating anti-Semitic feelings? Why?

    3. Find the section titled Nazi Racism in Tell Them We Remember. Use the photos and text to answer the following questions.

    3a. What was Hitlers preferred phenotype for Aryans?

    3b. Who, other than Jewish people, were excluded from the Aryan master race?

    3c. Which picture and caption (explanation) do you think was the most humiliating to

    the person ? Why?

    3d. In the last paragraph, we learn that teachers classified children as Aryans or

    not. Schools were important ways for the Nazi party to spread their values and

    principles, using anti-Semitic textbooks, posters, and childrens clubs. Do you think

    that school is an appropriate place to spread values and principles?

    ________________________________

    Why or why not?

    3e. Do you feel that you are being taught values and principles here at Rolfe?

    Explain your answer.

    you, etc.
