Description

If we wish to understand how Hitler viewed his mission, and the means by which his various subordinates sought to fulfil it, we must delve into the nature of the ideology of the party in which he served as head.

While there are innumerable sources for this ideology, this lesson plan aims to introduce students to Nazi Ideology and the way it was disseminated by the investigations of four key examples: a selection from Hitler’s Mein Kampf, the NSDAP 25-point plan, the Nuremberg Laws of 1935 and a 1938 pocketbook version of the Nuremberg Laws.

Students will look closely at these key documents, working to analyse this primary source material.

This lesson also includes an optional extension activity on key Nazi ideologue, Alfred Rosenberg.

A debrief featuring Holocaust Survivor testimony is also included at the end of this lesson plan.
