This exercise should be a meaningful activity that engages students with the Holocaust in two main ways: First, it allows for a review of the Holocaust teaching and learning in that it covers a range of people and groups who were involved in the Holocaust, in different ways. Second, it allows for a critical analysis of the roles of different individuals and groups by asking the students to categorise them into five different groups.
