In an attempt to give the incidents their rightful recognition in the historical context of the Holocaust, Dr. Firpo W. Carr has authored a new book entitled, Germany’s Black Holocaust: 1890–1945. In it, he reveals the startling hidden history of Black victims of the Holocaust. The mayhem and carnage date back to the turn of the 20th century, many years before there were ever any other unfortunate victims—Jew or Gentile—of the Holocaust.
These identity cards are designed to help students make personal connections with the victims of the Holocaust, and could be used before a novel study or a history lesson. Included: *37 ID cards (Jewish, Roma, Jehovah’s Witnesses, accused homosexuals, mentally ill, and the “righteous”) with a photo of the victim, his/her name, date of birth, place of birth, and a description of their life before Hitler came to power, before World War II, and after WWII began. *"newspaper" revealing fates
