Noted Holocaust historian Michael Berenbaum writes, "The Holocaust raises important questions and resists easy answers." This book offers a six-stage, student centered inquiry-based pedagogy that addresses complex questions and invites construction of complicated answers. Why the Jews? Why were there so many followers? Did the Jews resist? Each of the twenty-three inquiries presented in the book centers on an essential question and includes pedagogical strategies, compelling sources, and multiple suggestions to assess student learning.
