Using selected documents, photos, and maps
available in the Gantt Collection at Towson University Archives we have
created lesson plans for educators to use in the classroom. To start we have
one lesson available and will continue to add lesson plans as they are
Students will develop an understanding of primary sources, hone their
document analysis skills, and gain exposure to the charges leveled against
German industrialists and business leaders at Nuremberg. Students will
accomplish this by employing a Document Analysis Form to decode a series of
documents that were presented at various trials – specifically Case No. 5,
Case No. 6, and Case No. 10.
Students will demonstrate their understanding of major global trends since World
War II, specifically the role played by the
Nuremberg trials in reintroducing the “rule of law” to post-war Germany and
for laying the foundation for international law. Students will do this by
examining primary source documents that detail justice under the Nazi courts
and the justice brought to Germany by the international community.
Objective: Students will develop
an understanding of primary sources, hone their document analysis
skills, and gain exposure to civilian and military perspectives of
post-war Germany and Japan by employing a Document Analysis Form to
decode a 1947 NBC broadcast transcript from NBC's "Foreign policy"
