Reflection #4: The Holocaust

Choose ONE of the following to write a reflection on:

1. Watch:

  • (Ethical Judgment) Should we hold those who perpetrated the Holocaust accountable for their actions if they were following orders from an authority figure? Explain your thoughts.

2. Watch:

  • (Ethical Judgement) In what ways does Sally Kohn’s TED Talk apply to the Holocaust? In what ways can it be applied to the increase of hate crimes reported during Covid-19? Is there a dangerous element of hate in our society today? If so, where does it exist and how do we remedy it? If not, why isn’t it dangerous?

3. (Continuity and Change) Do some research about genocides that happened after the Holocaust. What similarities and differences are there? Is the Holocaust unique? Why hasn’t everyone around the world learned from the lessons of the Holocaust?
