In this program, students will delve into the impact of Nazism on German society in line with the Year 12 HSC Modern History Core Study Power and Authority in the Modern World 1919. By considering the various methods used by the Nazis to both gain and maintain control, students will gain a deeper appreciation of the effect of Nazism on life in Germany, particularly the impact on cultural expression, religion, workers, youth, women, and other minorities.

In addition to an in-depth seminar, students will hear the recollections of a Holocaust survivor and closely examine a range of artefacts in the Museum’s display. This program is designed to both enhance student content knowledge, historical understanding and source analysis skills while providing students with a deeper comprehension of the dangers of eliminating individual freedoms and the threat that dictatorships can pose to peace and security.
