Harris Academy, Pursuit of Justice
***This course is open to RE and Citizenship beginning teachers at the Harris Academy***
- How is it possible to punish crimes of genocide?
- What does it mean to seek justice for crimes of such magnitude?
This session presents four lessons for KS3 following the story of a single family, their murder at Sobibor and the trial almost 70 years later of former guard John Demjanjuk, accused of abetting the murder of some 27,900 people in 1943.
Exploring issues of legal and moral justice, this powerful series of lessons and educational materials are especially relevant for teachers of citizenship and history interested in the legacy and continuing significance of the Holocaust.
