STUDY GUIDE

A MESSAGE FROM EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH COORDINATOR DAVID BERKSON

Dear Fellow Educators,

Here is the study guide for Address Unknown. As you review it, a few things to keep in mind:

  • This study guide is designed to help students understand the play. For that reason, its primary focus in on world events and cultural movements between 1932-1938, the time frame of the play and the publication of the book that inspired it. (There is also a section covering events between 1919-1932).
  • Many important parts of the Holocaust occured outside of the time framework of this play, specifically WWII, and the creation, genocide and liberation of the death camps. The study guide you are receiving is 28 pages long, and does not cover those events. I have, however, prepared a timeline that does, and will be happy to send it to you if you think it will be helpful. Please don't hesitate to ask me if you need more materials of any kind.
  • You may use as little or as much of this guide as you like. It is ready for students to read and use, but our digital era allows for clicking and dropping, so please feel free.
  • Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Best regards,

David Berkson
