Jews in Hungary notes

Teaching notes on the content and usage of the 'Jews in Hungary' section of the resource, together with advice on the pedagogical challenges and conceptual issues it raises.

This image shows members of the Jewish community of Sighet (today Sighetu Marmaţiei in Romania). These people are shown in front of a wooden synagogue, similar to those found in small towns throughout eastern Europe prior to the Holocaust. Sighet was the home of Elie Wiesel, whose story is relayed in the accompanying postcard.
