Finding Hope: Seeking Refuge in Aotearoa New Zealand
The Holocaust raises a lot of important questions about what more could have been done to stop Nazi Germany and its collaborators from the attack on the Jewish population of Europe and North Africa. These questions are not just exclusive to the European community but to New Zealand and the wider global community.
This resource will examine the role of New Zealand.
Did New Zealand do enough before and during the Holocaust?
What the was response of the New Zealand government and
population to Jews seeking refuge in the country?
What impact have Jewish refugees made in New Zealand society?
How does New Zealand remember this dark time in world history?
This new resource will bring a new, creative way of teaching the Holocaust to your students.
This will include:
Eight pull up banners that explain New Zealand’s response to the Holocaust and the significance of this event on our history.
A teacher resource book that contains:
‘With the curriculum moving into New Zealand Histories this resource is an incredible way for you to ease New Zealand Histories into topics you are already teaching. Whilst looking further into the Holocaust and the impact it had on people you also get the pleasure of looking specifically at how it affected Māori and New Zealand.’
‘With Aotearoa New Zealand moving to teaching its local History, this resource is the perfect accompaniment to the curriculum.’
‘I love the graphics - the viewer is instantly drawn to the banners. These are a super accessible way for students to learn about the Holocaust.’
‘As a New Zealand History teacher, it is extremely hard to find great resources that directly link New Zealand to these big world events we study. With this Finding Hope resource and activities, we finally have that and now all our students can benefit.’ Auckland Teacher
