Canadian & World Studies: Grades 10-12
Second World War Archival Documents
Content Warning: Photographs in the "Dieppe Raid Documents" contain graphic images depicting violence and death.
The materials in these resource packages are meant to be used by educators for educational purposes. Students should be encouraged to critically analyze the archival records, determining the significance of the diversity of narratives on the events of the war, and the impacts such narratives would have had historically. As these are historical primary sources, it's important to note that the language used towards, and the representation of certain people can be prejudiced, racist, and sexist. Educators are strongly encouraged to ensure students using these resources are aware of this. Through critical thinking, students should determine the biased point of view of the record creators, the agenda behind the creation of the records, how these records were used and for what purpose, and if all of the information included in the records is factual or propagandistic in nature.
