Timelines

  • Almost every one of the larger sites has a time line of various style, some with additional links and some without.  If you find one you like, bookmark it.  Here are four that I felt would be most useful for this site.

     

    About time line
    is very thorough, covering from 1869, twenty years before Hitler was born in April of 1889, through 1962 when Adolf Eichmann was hanged. Good for the multitude of dates and activities for teacher review, and for students interested in researching any particular year.

     

    The History Place Time Line
    Starts with Hitler when he was appointed as Chancellor of Germany in 1933 and ends in 1961 with the trial of Adolf Eichmann. This site has many links worthy of a project.

     

    A Teachers Guide to the Holocaust Timeline
    has one of the best for teachers who are raring and ready to go to the class with lessons plans in hand. Everything is here including interactive quizzes. Starting from 1918 to 1933 with the “Rise of the Nazi Party”, working through 5 other specific periods, this time line finishes with “Aftermath” 1945 to 2000. Take a look.

     

    Thinkquest time line
    is pretty neat because it comes with a glossary and you can click on any year from 1933 to 1945. Each year sticks to the basics and provides links. Older students might find this a helpful resource for the ease of navigation and extensive glossary.
