Learn more about tour topics and how they relate to Georgia Standards.

A five-day lesson plan unit is available to extend the educational value of your visit to Absence of Humanity: the Holocaust Years. These materials will prepare students to think critically about the issues they will confront during their tour. The post-visit materials supplement the impact of the tour with suggestions for class discussion and further inquiry. Available free of charge after you book your tour.
