Auschwitz (Animated Map) (article)
Buna-Monowitz camp. Poland, (map) (photo)

Gleiwitz:

In mid-January 1945, as Soviet forces approached the Auschwitz concentration camp complex, the SS began evacuating Auschwitz and its subcamps. SS units forced nearly 60,000 prisoners to march west from the Auschwitz camp system. Thousands had been killed in the camps in the days before these death marches began.Tens of thousands of prisoners, mostly Jews, were forced to march either northwest for 55 kilometers (approximately 30 miles) to Gliwice (Gleiwitz)...Upon arrival in Gliwice and Wodzislaw, the prisoners were put on unheated freight trains and transported to concentration camps in Germany, particularly to Flossenbürg, Sachsenhausen, Gross-Rosen, Buchenwald, Dachau, and also to Mauthausen in Austria. The rail journey lasted for days. Without food, water, shelter, or blankets, many prisoners did not survive the transport. Auschwitz (article)

HW: Please review and read the remainder of Book Twelve. Annotate your document with a focus on the leadership decisions of Odysseus during his encounters with the Sirens, Scylla and Charybdis. Did he act heroically? Upon arrival at the Island of the Sun god (Helios), consider the words and actions of Odysseus:

1.) What "fateful decision" did Odysseus require of his men?
2.) As Odysseus went off to pray to the gods, evaluate and judge the decision and actions of Eurylochous and the men. Given the circumstances, did Odysseus' men "respect the Sun god"? Why? Why not?
3) Evaluate the immediate response of Odysseus after he realizes what his men did? As their leader, what does he do? Was this wise?
