Description

The changing attitudes towards survivor testimony as a historical source demonstrate some of the ways Holocaust historiography has changed, and continues to change over time.

In this lesson students will consider the reality of an historical site through the testimony of two individuals who experienced it very differently. The site students will consider in this lesson is the extermination camp Treblinka.

Almost nothing exists from this site today. The one thing that lingers on is memory, both of survivors and perpetrators. In this lesson, students will engage with, and analyse, the recollections of a Treblinka survivor, Adek Stein, and a Treblinka perpetrator, Franz Stangl.

The consideration of this site through these two very different primary recounts will highlight the delicate relationship of history and memory in the investigation of the past.
