Crisis and Conflict

  • What was the world like at the turn of the twentieth century?
  • What chain of events led to the First World War?
  • What were the outcomes of this war?
  • How did these outcomes create conditions that made the Second World War likely/inevitable?
  • How did these conditions assist the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in post-war Germany?

Cultural Expression

  • How were the world’s creative force – writer’s, artists, musicians, choreographers and filmmakers – influenced by changes including war, industrial development and political movements.
  • How did mass media influence the ability of governments to control and organisations to revolt?
  • Focusing on Hitler’s Germany – how were these creative forces censored and manipulated and how did this influence society?
what do you know
What do you know?
  • Collect a Lotus diagram and in the boxes provided write (briefly) everything you know (or think you know) about Adolf Hitler, Germany, the Nazis, the two World Wars and other related topics.
  • Once you have written down as much as you can, form a group of 4 to make a larger lotus diagram on an A3 piece of paper.
  • As we move through the topic we will re-assess our Lotus diagram to add and re-arrange information to consolidate our understanding.

Method 2: From the bottom up…


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out -- Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out --Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out --Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me -- and there was no one left to speak for me.
