For more than 50 years, Eastern Europeans who were forced to work for German firms by the Nazis waited for compensation while surviving slave laborors from western countries received some kind of financial acknowledgement.
For all those years these victims were a neglected minority, but in the recent years they gained political and media support and finally the few survivors are about to receive a small sum of money for their suffering.
Justice at Last reveals the development and the important facts of slave labor under the Nazi regime. It draws a picture of the difficult path to the
present compensation process.
We are stating just a few suggestions. We hope visitors will include additional suggestions in the forum section of the site.
- Students can participate in this site's diary-section. Have them select a
character and read the history to develop a detailed entry that can be shared in a classroom dramatic reading.

The student developers of this site believe it can contribute to education for several reasons:
- Students receive information about one little-known aspect of the holocaust and the consequences for the victims as well as for modern
society. This site illustrates the trend of not forgetting victims of dictatorships.
- The development of a country from a dictatorship to a democratic society is shown, which includes the change of attitudes towards the victims of that dictatorship.
- The contents may incite the students' interest in learning more about history in general and the holocaust and its consequences in particular.
- Teacher's Guide to the Holocaust
(This is a really good, moving collection of people's fates and links to other sites.)
- Do you remember when ."
(This is a really great and moving online-exhibition from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum on two boys from a concentration camp; one of them survived. This exhibition presents a book on their life that his friend gave to him.)
- The Button Project
(A group seeks buttons to be used in an art structure memorializing victims of the holocaust. One of the main organizers of the project is Dr. Joy Miller, author of Love Carried Me Home...Women Surviving Auschwitz. The site explains how others may become involved in the project.)
|The teacher's section of the site was developed from ideas suggested by team coaches, parents, and subject specialists.|
