Write a review or an article that expresses your reaction to the value of this book as assigned reading in the English or Language Arts curriculum.

Write an essay expressing your like or dislike of the book. Did it have any effect on your views? Feelings? Attitudes? Actions?

Locate pictorial images of the Holocaust. Working in an individual setting, prepare an essay based on the mood, emotions, and theme conveyed in the selected illustration.

Elie Wiesel once said that anyone who witnesses an atrocity, or an act of inhumanity, and does nothing to stop it, is just as guilty as the person committing the act. Those who know and remain silent are guilty of the same offense. To stand by silently is to participate in the crime. Do you agree with Elie Wiesel’s judgement? Explain.

Should students continue to study the Holocaust in school today? Give specific reasons for your response.
