I haven’t read that one, but Night by Elie Wiesel is excellent. Such a heart-wrenching true story of Elie’s experiences with his father during the holocaust. Thanks for the suggestion.

Plus, I almost have 50 followers. Wanna jump over and help me out with that?

Thanks, A to Zer!

Haven’t actually read the book yet, but I know that I really need to. When I was working in a middle school for a short time, the whole school did a wonderful activity. Each student, teacher, and staff member (totaling about 2,400 people) had a few weeks to put 5,000 dots onto a single piece of paper. The students knew it was going to be for a PTO program, but that was it. On the morning of the program, staff were posting up all 2,400 pieces of paper. Each dot represented a human life that was lost during the holocaust (about 12 million dots for 12 million people). EXCELLENT school-wide activity. Then they watched the movie during class time about Anne Frank.

I am embarassed to admit that I have never read anything by Louis Lowy. I’m planning on reading The Giver this month, though.

I found you through the BEA Blogger directory and just added you to my google reader. I’m trying to get to know the other bloggers who are attending. I’m looking forward to getting to know you through your blog over the next few weeks and maybe meeting you in person at BEA.

I love almost every Holocaust story: they’re so moving. Thanks for the love; I’ll return the favor!
