Within popular consciousness the Holocaust is often characterised by the application of modern industrial technology, the ‘factories of death’ for the purpose of mass murder. As much as there is truth in this, the reality is more complex and more discomforting. In this lesson students make a historical enquiry into Treblinka and discover the reality of genocide is not as straightforward as we would believe.
