This is a short assignment I use in my unit on The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
when we focus on the Holocaust. It is a simple assignment that asks students to research and find the recorded story of a holocaust survivor (links are provided with text, audio, and video resources). Then, they are given a short writing prompt with a few key items to look for and reflect upon. Personally, I use this activity for my students' blog sites, but it can be easily be used or adapted for a different use.
