An Introduction to the Holocaust

"It is true that the world of a Holocaust victim was one continuous dehumanizing experience...but I cannot agree with those who only saw darkness." - Norbert Friedman, Holocaust survivor

Never Forget: An Introduction to the Holocaust tells the often complicated and difficult story of the Holocaust for younger audiences (5th and 6th Grade). The exhibition asks nine important questions, including "What was Jewish life like before the Holocaust?" "What happened to the victims?" and "How did people fight back?" Never Forget features the story of one Holocaust victim, Norbert Friedman, who survived eleven camps and eventually immigrated to the United States after the Holocaust.

Never Forget: An Introduction to the Holocaust encourages students to never forget and to use the lessons of the Holocaust to be an upstander, not a bystander.

This project is supported by the Georgia Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.

Funding for this exhibit was also provided by the Kennesaw State University Student Assistance for Leadership in Teaching (SALT) program, the Marcus Foundation, Kennesaw State University, and the generous support of our patrons.


The "Never Forget" teacher's guide, created in support of our newest traveling exhibition, is designed specifically to help you guide your 5th grade students through this difficult topic.


Download, print, and distribute this self-guide to allow your students to explore and think critically about the exhibit at their own pace. Students may also work through the self-guide in pairs.
