Product Description
Learning Across the Curriculum: Sociology and History in Fiction

War Flower is a short story (5840 words) that introduces students to the Battle of Leningrad, with its attendant miseries of death by starvation, and asks students to consider the changes in the expectations society has of children - how those roles change in times of crisis and what people will do to stay alive. Research opportunities include finding where Leningrad is, how the name was changed from St. Petersburg, to Leningrad and now Petrograd, the Winter Palace of the Tsars, Tanya Savichev, and Operation Barbarossa - Hitler's the eastern campaign, death tolls, and Stalin's scorched earth policy. Includes 4 footnotes.
