HHS Book Club

Holocaust

On December 6th, Holmes High School Book Club members discussed book selections from a variety of titles under the umbrella of Holocaust literature that complemented the freshman class's study of the memoir Night by Eli Wiesel.  The titles included were:  The Devil's Arithmetic by Jane Yolen, Milkwee by Jerry Spinelli, The Nazi Huners by Neal Bascomb, Children in the Holocaust and World War II:  Their Secret Diaries by Laurel Holliday and Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally.

The topics ranged from the historical to the current.  Connections were made between petty bullying to the escalation of presecution of the Jews that led to the Holocaust of World War II, as well as considering the length and impact of presecution of various minority and scapegoat groups throughout history.  The Trails of Tears, the tagedy of the Mayans and the slave traders of Africa were also discussed in the larger context of cultural desecration and relocation throughout human history.

The Holmes High School Book Club meets monthly.  January's discussion will center around the novel by Neal Shusterman, Scyths.  Students can pick up this title while supplies last in the library.  Students who participate in the after school discussion each month get to keep the title for their own personal library.  We hope to see you there!
