Quicklet on Lois Lowry s Number the Stars CliffNotes like Book Notes Book Excerpt:

ABOUT THE BOOK Number the Stars is author Lois Lowry's fictional account of actual historic events that took place in Denmark during World War II. The book follows two families, the Johansens and the Rosens, as they struggle for survival against the oppressive and invasive Nazi occupation. When it is discovered that the Nazis plan to "relocate"all of Copenhagen's Jewish population, the Johansens realize they must do everything they can to help their Jewish neighbors, the Rosens. The story is told through the perspective of the Johansens' eldest daughter, Annemarie. As the story progresses, Annemarie grows up fast, learning to be brave in the face of certain danger and realizing the importance of doing the right thing, even when circumstances are difficult. MEET THE AUTHOR David Hauslein is a screenwriter who occasionally produces short prose and non-fiction works. His most recent screenplay, Buck Run, was selected as one of the Top 40 finalists in the Final Draft Big Break Screenplay Competition.

David is available for freelance writing assignments. For work samples and additional information please visit www.davidhauslein.com EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The character of Annemarie is a ten-year old girl thrust into the world of serious adult problems and life or death consequences. Though she is still a child, she finds her responsibilities multiply as the story reaches its climax. Annemarie is often shown parallel to her younger sister Kirsti, a precocious little girl who is oblivious to the troubles of the world. Annemarie cannot relate to her sister. Since the death of her elder sister Lise, Annemarie's relationship with her former brother-in-law Peter Neilsen has changed as well. He used to be jocular and relatable. Now, in the midst of war, he is serious and driven. She can no longer relate to him either, leaving her stranded between childhood and adulthood. At various points in the story adults require her to be brave and act mature, but refuse to tell her everything she wants to know, because she is still a child.

Tolerance Discourse and Young Adult Holocaust Literature Book Excerpt:

What, exactly, does one mean when idealizing tolerance as a solution to cultural conflict? This book examines a wide range of young adult texts, both fiction and memoir, representing the experiences of young adults during WWII and the Holocaust. Author Rachel Dean-Ruzicka argues for a progressive reading of this literature. Tolerance Discourse and Young Adult Holocaust Literature contests the modern discourse of tolerance, encouraging educators and readers to more deeply engage with difference and identity when studying Holocaust texts. Young adult Holocaust literature is an important nexus for examining issues of identity and difference because it directly confronts systems of power, privilege, and personhood. The text delves into the wealth of material available and examines over forty books written for young readers on the Holocaust and, in the last chapter, neo-Nazism. The book also looks at representations of non-Jewish victims, such as the Romani, the disabled, and homosexuals. In addition to critical analysis of the texts, each chapter reads the discourses of tolerance and cosmopolitanism against present-day cultural contexts: ongoing debates regarding multicultural education, gay and lesbian rights, and neo-Nazi activities. The book addresses essential questions of tolerance and toleration that have not been otherwise considered in Holocaust studies or cultural studies of children’s literature.
