Commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day in the English Language Classroom

27 January, the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp, has been designated by the UN as International Holocaust Memorial Day.

In view of International Holocaust Memorial Day I would like to invite my colleagues to use this lesson plan with their students this week and to return to me with their own reflections and the reflections of their students, but also with documentation of their students' work. Hopefully feedback collected comes from various countries which will provide an opportunity to compare holocaust awareness in those areas.

How much do we know about the holocaust? How is the holocaust relevant today?

I would like to thank Mark Andrews for inspiration.
