Methods of Working with the Theme of Shoah in the Context of Institutional Education

Milan Mašát

 

ABSTRACT: 

In this paper, we present selected methods for working with the theme of Shoah with a focus on Literary Education at the lower-secondary school. After a theoretical introduction, in which we briefly summarize the importance of the Shoah issue for citizens living in society in the twenty-first century, we present in some detail the presentation of selected methods for acquainting students with the defined phenomenon with emphasis on education at the second stage of basic institutional education. We present in more detail The Survivors´ Heritage, The Historical Approach, The Multi-Level Approach, An Interdisciplinary Approach and The Intercultural/Antiracist Approach. We also mention the approach marginally Did the Shoah Really Happen? Evaluating Sources and Evidence. In the article, we mean by the concept of the Shoah, experiencing the events of one line of the Second World War from the position of Jews, and at the same time we perceive it as a synonym for the term Holocaust.
