Remembering the Holocaust: A Book List for My Students

My students need non-fictional accounts to choose from for their semester long Holocaust studies course.

My Students

Our students come from a rural, economically deprived area of Pennsylvania. Forty percent of the students receive free or reduced lunch. Our school is located in a county that is one of the most poverty stricken counties in the state; over 15% of the population is at or below the poverty level. Our tax base is relatively low as a result.

Even though students come from an economically disadvantaged area, they embrace innovative learning.

They have embraced the challenge and strive for success in education.

My Project

I recently returned from a week-long study tour through Poland with Yad Vashem and Echoes and Reflections. The tour focused on Holocaust related historic sites: ghettos, deportation centers, and extermination sites. The biggest takeaway from my journey was the individual stories that need read and shared.

I teach a semester-long Holocaust studies course and my aim is for my students to choose a story to read and share with their classmates.

In order to make this goal occur I need a library of books. This list was suggested by our guide; who is a new friend and a daughter of a Holocaust survivor. Students will choose from the list, read their chosen book, and create a presentation to share with their classmates. This will vastly expand their knowledge of first-hand accounts from the Holocaust.
