Researching Children of the Holocaust
A Webquest Based on Surviving Hitler: A Boy in the Nazi Death Camps, by Andrea Warren

Introduction

Currently, we are reading Surviving Hitler in class. Like that book, you are going to write a book based on the life of another child involved in the Holocaust. As a writer, you will need to:

1.  find a subject for your book

2.  research pertinent information to include in your story

3. write the story of your child

Your book will be like Surviving Hitler in that it will be based on a real person and real events in history. Your job in this webquest is to begin the research process that an author would follow to write a book about a child of the Holocaust, keeping a writer’s notebook as you research
