PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

After Mama is taken away by the Nazis, Riva and her younger brothers cling to their mother's brave words to help them endure life in the Lodz ghetto. Then the family is rounded up, deported to Auschwitz, and separated. Now Riva is alone.

At Auschwitz, and later in the work camps at Mittlesteine and Grafenort, Riva vows to live, and to hope - for Mama, for her brothers, for the millions of other victims of the nightmare of the Holocaust. And through determination and courage, and unexpected small acts of kindness, she does live - to write the unforgettable memoir that is a testament to the strength of the human spirit.

This 15 page document is a guided response packet that can be used as discussion in class and assigned at night after chapters are read.

Vocabulary words are given at the top of each chapter. Chapters responses are coupled by twos due to the 48 short chapters in the book. Also included are questions that require the knowledge of symbolism and irony. Definitions are given for these before student attempts answers.

In culmination six essay topics are given. Students are able to pick one and complete a writing piece to end the novel.
