Journal Entry 2 by futurecat from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Friday, January 02, 2009
Based on the true story of a high-school history class that participated in a demonstration of how easily people's need for conformity can be manipulated to lead to a situation like Nazi Germany. But when the experiment took on a life of its own, and rapidly began to take over the whole school, the teacher who started it all had to find a way of ending it without doing even more damage.

Since WWII there have been many books and articles written about the psychology of conformity and authority, and this is by no means the best, but it is a good simple introduction to get teenagers thinking about how seemingly unthinkable situations can come about.
