Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

Mike Kubic, a former Newsweek magazine correspondent, discusses his experiences as a post-WWII refugee and the need to address the refugee crisis of Middle Eastern migrants struggling for entry into Europe.

"How do people create change?" and "How are we changed by war?"
