Subject: Art History

Resources to support GCSE History and Art & Design students when studying the Holocaust.

This resource can be used to support Holocaust studies for GCSE History students, and is also intended for use by GCSE Art and Design students who wish to research Holocaust art.

The resource can help students to ‘deconstruct’ art works and included are ideas for further thought and discussion, as well as some practical starting points for the creation of students own visual art work.

It is important to recognise that the resource explores themes identified within a number of works from the Ben Uri Gallery, the London Jewish Museum of Art collection only, and that the subject of Holocaust art is a very broad topic which may require further investigation outside of this resource.

LGfL, the Ben Uri Gallery and The London Jewish Cultural Centre have worked in partnership to create a resource that complements the Holocaust Explained resource.

Please note:

This resource is targeted at Key Stage 4 students and is offered as an 'Open Access' resource. As a result there are no age restrictions on who can access this resource.

Teachers and parents are advised to assess the suitability of the material prior to students using the material in support of their studies.
