Holocaust and Human Behavior uses our unique methodology to lead students through an examination of the history of the Holocaust, while fostering their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement.

By focusing on the choices of individuals who experienced this history—through primary sources, eyewitness testimonies, personal reflections, poetry, and images—students are given a lens to thoughtfully examine the universal themes and questions about human behavior inherent in a study of the Holocaust. Students are also prompted to draw connections between history and the world today.

Holocaust and Human Behavior has been fully revised to reflect the latest scholarship on Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, as well as new research from the fields of neuroscience and the psychology of bias and prejudice. This revision also features a new chapter on World War I.

In this edition you’ll find a wealth of new materials to support your teaching, including more than 200 readings, maps, historical photographs, visual essays, as well as video and lesson plan recommendations.
