The Nazis murdered millions of innocent men, women, children — even infants. What could make ordinary people participate in, or even just tolerate, such evil?
It’s impossible to grasp why people committed such acts of extraordinary evil without understanding both the ideology of anti-Semitism and how it functioned in Nazism. The Streicher Case as part of Module 4, provides a way to understand both and can give students a broader context to understand the Holocaust.
This module is timely not only because of the re-emergence of anti-Semitism, but also because it raises questions about political correctness, the concept of hate speech, and the limits of freedom of speech and press.
