PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Daniel's Story is a 1993 children's novel by Carol Matas, telling the story of a teenage boy named Daniel and his experiences in the Holocaust in World War II. Daniel and his family barely remember living a normal life before the Nazis came to power in 1933. No longer able to practice their religion, vote, own property, or work, Daniel's family is forced from their home in Frankfurt. First, they are deported to Łódź, Poland, where he meets a girl he comes to love. The place is liquidated and the Jews are transported to Auschwitz. Daniel survives the death camp and is transferred to Buchenwald. He endures to witness the camp's liberation in 1945. This is a must read when teaching the Holocaust in grades 6 - 8.

The study guide addresses the following skills: recalling details, drawing conclusions, finding cause and effect, and making inferences. The students have several opportunities to write personal narratives and news reports and to complete a final project. There is also some research included. There are questions for each chapter. This is the third study guide on the Holocaust that I have created. The other two are Number the Stars and The Devil's Arithmetic. Both Daniel's Story and The Devil's Arithmetic are graphic and should be used with students 6th grade and higher.
