    Holocaust Panel

    Having obtained a degree in Archaeological Studies I worked as a field archaeologist in Britain and then at the University of New Mexico. From there I moved into education and became a teacher in 1984. I have been a Head of Department and am currently the Head of History and Archaeology at the West Somerset Community Collge in Minehead, Somerset and also a Senior Teacher there. I have also gained examination experience having served as a moderator, examiner, team leader for both, Principal Examiner, INSET provider and reviser for one of the major GCSE boards (a number of these posts I still retain). I have published a number of things for Heinemann, Hodder and Stoughton and Shire Publications.

    Student Questions

    One area in which ex-slaves made a substantial contribution which is generally overlooked is the colonisation of the Great Plains. By 1880 some 25,000 black people (largely ex-slaves) had settled in Kansas. Nicodemus was an early black settlement which became abusy market centre until the railroad by-passed it. By 1900 black people had farmed 50,000 acres in Nebraska. A major contribution.....
  5. You might also want to consider the Jews who remained undercover throughout the war in Nazi Germany. These people were often referred to as 'submarines' and there are various accounts to draw upon. One of the best known (and the subject of a recent TV documentary) is found in the book 'The Nazi Officer's Wife' by Edith Hahn (published by Abacus). Another good source is 'The Past in Hiding' by Mark Roseman (published by Penquin) telling the story of Marianne Strauss.
