Matilda Kalef - Three Promises

1. This particular lesson is suitable for teaching about the Holocaust, since students will have the opportunity to learn that the Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. Moreover, students will be informed that more than 90% of Belgrade’s Jewish families were murdered during the Holocaust. 2. Besides being informed about the Holocaust, the most significant notion that teachers will impart to students is the notion of altruism. The primary concept that students should remember is the importance of taking care of other people΄s welfare as well as of helping others without expecting anything in return. In my opinion, nothing is more important than teaching compassion, since teaching empathy, altruism and compassion to school children benefits the classroom environment.
