For those who survived the Holocaust, the immediate impact of the defeat of Nazi Germany was the stark realisation that life had changed irrevocably.
Many survivors faced common issues and challenges, although just as there was no single, universal experience of the Holocaust so was each survivor confronted by their own individual trauma, priorities and concerns. Students are given a sense of this by honing in on the remarkable story of Leon Greenman’s experiences in the first twelve months after the Second World War. This is the second of four lesson resources entitled ‘Legacy of the Holocaust’.
