Lesson Plan (The Third Wave)

A couple of days ago, I posted a review of Die Welle, the German remake of the movie, The Wave.  Yesterday, we watched Lesson Plan, a documentary directed by one of the original students in Ron Jones and featuring several students and the teacher.

The documentary is simply interviews with the students, laid out by day.  They talk about what happened on each day.  It's amazing to hear how it occurred, what they were thinking, and even how they each experienced it so differently.  The experience obviously had a profound impact on each of them.

I definitely recommend the book, the movie, and the documentary if you have ever wondered how the Germans could have gone along with Hitler, or if it could ever happen again.  It's been fascinating.
