Useful Holocaust Websites

Most of these links lead you to the main page of the website.  Do a search within the site or use the site map to navigate around and find information on your topic.

Teacher’s Guide to the Holocaust – excellent source for images, maps, websites, media and primary documents.

The United States Holocaust Museum – numerous resources available in PDFs for download

The United States Holocaust Museum Student Resources – organized by theme, this site uses text, historical photographs, maps, images of artifacts, and audio clips to provide an overview of the Holocaust

Holocaust/Genocide Project – a good site for links to websites providing detailed information on various Holocaust topics

Google’s Holocaust Search Page – links to reliable Holocaust sites

Jewish Virtual Library – Holocaust – individual links organized by specific topic from anti-semitism to Zionism

The Basics

Your final project will consist of a project display board and a report.


Your report should be three to five pages long, double-spaced with 12 point font and 1” margins. You will choose your topic from the list. You are required to have a minimum of 3 sources with 6-12 notecards per source.  Your report will include an outline as well as a works cited page.  The outline and works cited page are not included in the 3-5 page total.  The outline and works cited page will be collected and graded separately.  Your final paper is due Wednesday, March 16 (Day 2) and Thursday, March 17 (Day 1).

Poster Board

Pictures should be included.  Additional material (models, poetry, newsletters, and brochures) may be included. No handwriting is allowed on the project board. Captions must be typed. This must be your very best work. Projects will be on display in the hallway. You may work in pairs or you may work alone on the board, but each student does his or her own research paper. If you work with a partner, you will get a group grade, and each group member will receive the same grade.


Each day you will be required to complete a minimum of 4 notecards. Note cards will count as a quiz grade.  Note cards must include citation for source(s) and one fact (1-2 sentences) per card.   Note cards are to be printed 4 per page using Power Point or Keynote.
