As part of our World War 2 Unit, we read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne to help our students connect with the world during World War 2 in the most restrained way we have been able to find, in order to help those students who may struggle with the subject manner. The Holocaust is a hard topic to teach, and while we think it is very important that our students learn about the topic, we also want to not bring so much imagery into their minds that they are overwhelmed. Reading a non-fiction book often is very difficult for students to read, especially students with special needs. Often students who have certain learning disabilities (and abilities) see things differently than most people and teaching a book that might overwhelm them with the reality of what life was like during that time can overburden them and make them not reach the curriculum. We have found that this book helps them access the content, without going into too much detail if they don't want to go any farther into the harsh realities of the Holocaust. This book is a great place for young students to start learning about the Holocaust and then go learn more on their own if they so choose.
