Impossible decisions in World War Two

This week, we thought about the impossible decisions faced by Jewish people and other groups in the Third Reich- to stay in occupied territory or try to escape to a safer place.

First, we looked at photo sources and used them to interpret what life was like under Nazi rule.

We then created a timeline of anti-Jewish laws, implemented from 1933 when Hitler came to power. We were so shocked to find out the different ways the Jewish community was affected by the Nazi’s rise to power.


We learnt about the story of Anne Frank and her incredible bravery. We imagined we were a friend of Anne, writing her letters of support while she was in hiding.
