Bringing the Holocaust Unit to Closure: Implications for the Future
RESOURCES AND HANDOUTS
For example, in May 2003, the hazing incident at nearby Glenbrook North High School in Northbrook, Illinois, made a profound impact on my students. Since Northbrook is a nearby suburb, I used this incident as an opener to talk about bystander behavior: all of those students who stood by and watched what was happening, who had cell phones in their hands, but no one called for help. They watched as their fellow students were being beaten. "All it takes for the triumph of evil is for good men to stand by and do nothing." (Edmund Burke)
