Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Anti-Jewish Legislation in Prewar Germany" by The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

This article details the rise of anti-Semitic laws in Nazi Germany throughout the 1930s which eventually led to the complete dehumanization and segregation of Jews living in Nazi-occupied territory.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Prejudice & Discrimination, Social Change & Revolution, and Social Pressure as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"What are the effects of prejudice?", "What are the effects of following the crowd?", and "Why do people resist change?"
