Understanding the Holocaust: How and why did it happen? is the only research-informed school textbook on the Holocaust in the world. Published by Hodder Education, the textbook has been specifically designed for use at Key Stage 3.

Class sets of the textbook are available, free of charge, to any teacher in a state maintained school in England. The textbook is aimed at history teachers, but other teachers are eligible for a class set if they intend to use the book extensively.

The textbook has been written in direct response to the findings of our 2016 research into students’ knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust.
