    Holocaust Education Resources for Teachers - This contains some embedded video of interviews - simplistic but nice to see this out there. Also contains some testimonials

    Deathly Silence Workshop - Explores the role everyday people in the events of the Holocaust. The workshop (part of the Southern Institute's effort to provide instructional resources for Holocaust and diversity education) guides middle/high school teachers and students on the behavior and motives of "bystanders" who did little to protest the persecution and Holocaust. A lengthy guide is available for viewing or downloading at: http://www.tulane.edu/~so-inst/dindex.htm. It begins by placing anti-Semitism in historical perspective, starting with the period before the Crusades and extending to the rise of the Nazi and the Holocaust. (comments from Dennis Boals)
