Can your GCSE students say how much the Germans knew about the Holocaust and why so little was done to act on the warning signs?

A new GCSE lesson is shortly to be uploaded which asks the provocative questions about what the Germans actually knew and why so little was done when the warning signs started to appear.

Set in Berlin in 1941, students have to work out what they think the Germans knew and how they would have acquired their knowledge. They then prioritise a range of possible motives explaining why so little was done to protest about the evacuation and treatment of the Jews when it seems to us today that so much more should and could have been done to prevent it.
