The Reichstag Fire

Activities Resources
Reichstag Fire coursework activity. The link takes you to the essential, hypertext version but you can can also download print friendly Word versions.

The purpose built, IST Reichstag Fire website has everything you need to complete your first coursework assignment: questions, sources, roleplay, provenance section, discussion forum and further links for research. 

Reichstag Fire roleplay activity. Produced in association with JohnDClare.net, in this activity students construct an imaginary trial in which the Nazi Party stands accused of starting the fire. Students play the roles of 10 witnesses and the prosecution and defence lawyers. 

See the videos of the roleplay reconstruction from 2003: either high quality (broadband or from within the IST) or medium quality (dial-up modem).
