Nazi Persecution of Black People notes

Teaching notes on the content and usage of the 'Persecution of black people' section of the resource, together with advice on the pedagogical challenges and conceptual issues it raises.

The girl (name unknown) in the centre of this image was the mixed race child of a German woman from the Rhineland and a French colonial soldier. The photograph has survived because it was used as a slide in a lecture on genetics at the State Academy for Race and Health in Dresden in the late 1930s.
