The historical significance of the Holocaust

Recommended Posts

I assign term papers about Twentieth Century history every year in my classes and I hold them to the fire in terms of coming up with strong arguments/theses that provide historical analysis.

I have almost gotten to the point where I am going to ban papers on the Holocaust or Auschwitz. The problem is almost that the crimes are unimaginable and the with the deed done students have a very difficult time coming up with an effective thesis that presents an analysis of historical significance. To focus on the effects takes the students away from the content they are trying to present. Ducking the thesis is the most common problem where they present facts from the Holocaust and let the awful truth speak for itself, which undermines the intent of the assignment. help, I am once again placing comments on papers trying to guide students with this topic.
