Adolescent/Young Adult Literature Titles/Holocaust.
Jones, Darolyn Lyn
This paper presents descriptions of the 10 best young adult novels (and teaching suggestions) appropriate for studying the Holocaust in the middle school. Each description begins with a summary and "hook" that can be used with students, and then ends with discussion for the teacher about reading abilities and applications in the classroom. Several descriptions also offer websites that may be used in conjunction with the novel. Novels described are: "Tunes for Bears to Dance to" (Robert Cormier); "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl" (Anne Frank); "Nightfather" (Carl Friedman); "The Hate Crime" (Phyllis Karas); "Number the Stars" (Lois Lowry); "Daniel's Story" (Carol Matas); "If I Should Die before I Wake" (han nolan); "Upon the Head of a Goat: A Childhood in Hungary 1939-1944" (Aranka Siegal); "Night" (Elie Wiesel); and "Sunflower" (Simon Wiesenthal).
