Lesson 1

L.O. I can understand that all countries participated in WW2 in some way.

This short film provides insight into the scope of the war and how many countries were involved.

We hear from an eye-witness called Anna, who tells us how her family had to flee to Austria when the bombing started in Budapest and how frightening the whole experience was for her.

The ‘Did You Know’ section explores how the most powerful nations at the time controlled other lands and ruled them as colonies.

Watch the video and make notes on anything particularly important. You will need your notes later!

Conduct some research into Switzerland’s role in WW2.

Use the word document named ‘Was Switzerland neutral facts’ and the following links to research Switzerland’s standpoint in World War II.


Lesson 2:

Write a balanced argument to respond to the question ‘Was Switzerland neutral in WW2?’

Use the resources provided (powerpoint, planning sheet, work bank and checklist) to support you with this.
