The FDR Presidential Library and Museum has released “Investigating the Holocaust,” curriculum material for teaching about the Holocaust and Nazi aggression during World War II. This guide is free to all teachers and anyone looking for educational tools about World War II and the Holocaust. The guide can be found at

“Investigating the Holocaust” is a series of short videos derived from “Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today,” a powerful, feature-length documentary restoring and reprising a 1946 Stuart Schulberg/Pare Lorentz production titled, “Nurnberg.” These videos feature original film footage used as evidence by the International Military Tribunal at the Palace of Justice in Nuremberg, Germany--the most famous courtroom drama in modern times, and the first to make extensive use of film as evidence.

“Investigating the Holocaust” is part of the Henry Morgenthau Jr. Holocaust Collections Project, a pathfinding initiative to discover and share unique but dispersed Holocaust subject material across the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library’s archival holdings. The Pare Lorentz Center at the FDR Library, with generous funding from the New York Community Trust, created this video series. Special thanks to Sandra Schulberg for permission to use her fully restored documentary. To learn more, visit our website:
