Turbes & Powers Holocaust Research Guide

During the months of December and January, students will be reading the novel Number the Stars by Lois Lowry.  This Newbery award winning book is told from the point of view of ten-year old Annemarie Johansen, a Danish Christian, whose best friend is a Danish Jew.  The story is set in the city of Copenhagen, Denmark, in September, 1943, the third year of the Nazi occupation of Denmark.  As students read this text as well as various Holocaust related novel during personal reading time, not only will they extend their reading and vocabulary skills and apply previous and newly-acquired strategies, but they will also develop concept knowledge relating to World War II and Hitler’s rise to power.
