Library     Death Marches in the Holocaust     Parent Guide

by The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum


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.

This week in class, we’re reading "Death Marches in the Holocaust" by The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

“Death Marches in the Holocaust” discusses how concentration camp prisoners were evacuated and forced to walk in conditions that few were able to survive.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Comedy & Tragedy, Death, and War & Peace as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How do people face death?", "What can we learn from tragedy?", and "How are we changed by war?"
