Rubric for Holocaust Activity
Japanese War Atrocities Online Activity - On the other side of the world, even before the Nazis followed Hitler's plan to decimate the Jews and other non-Aryans, the Japanese military was expanding into and destroying neighboring Asian societies and cultures. Since the "Asian Holocaust" has become more known in recent years and is a necessary part of human history and relations, I would like you to delve into the topic as well, for I believe that it is a under-reported and little understood aspect of World War II.  Although there is more information and many more sites about the Holocaust, the listed sites contain large amounts of information; some of the information is more graphic and disturbing than that of comparable Holocaust sites.  Students are warned to exercise caution and read the descriptions of the web sites before reviewing them due to the disturbing imagery and text.  This was an in-class assignment and is due at the end of class on May 11, 2007.
