We read this story in my tenth grade class with my student teacher, Joe. (he's doing a great job by the way....like so good that my students may not want me back!) Anyway, I love this book so much because of how Wiesel captivates me each time and how I always cry when the little boy is hanged in front of 10,000 men and someone asks, "Where is God?" and Wiesel responds to himself that he was up there on the gallows... SHIVERS. I also love this book because all of my non-readers, even though it is written at a low-level for high school, the content is so high and rich that my students BURN through this book. It's beautiful!
Does anyone have a favorite holocaust book?
