Social Justice Stories

building compassion, tolerance, and responsible citizenship through social justice narratives

Adolf Hitler aimed to make Poland a living space for ethnic Germans, exploit Polish resources, and use the Poles for slave labour.

After a staged attack on Germany - where Nazis posed as Poles, attacked a German radio station, and perpetrated violent incidents along the border - the invasion of Poland was falsely justified to the international public through propaganda.

German troops stormed into the country from the north, south, and west in 1939. Jews were then either killed, kidnapped, or sent to concentration camps. Approximately 6 million Poles were killed during the German occupation which ended in 1945, of which over half were Jews.
