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 "Woman Who Helped Anne Frank Dies at 100" by Teri Schultz, National Public Radio.

In this interview from NPR, a reporter speaks to the woman who helped to hide Anne Frank’s family, risking her own life in the process.

"What can we learn from tragedy?", "Can you change your identity?", and "How are we changed by war?"
