I read this book to prepare lessons for my 6th grade classroom. We were learning about the Terezin Ghetto that was open during WWII in preparation for attending the play I Never Saw Another Butterfly. The book is a collection of poems and visual artwork that were done by Jewish prisoners who were held in this ghetto, mostly by children. The history of the ghetto is amazing and something I was never aware of until I read this book. My students were silent as they read and responded to the poems. We also read large parts of The Cat with the Yellow Star as we studied these poems. The Cat with the Yellow Star is an autobiography of a girl who was in the ghetto and was published in 2007. It helped to round out our understanding of the messages in the poems.
