We are about to go on a web quest titled, “I Never Saw Another Butterfly”. The title of the web quest comes from the poem “The Butterfly” it was written by a child in a concentration camp; her name was Pavel Friedman.
To continue the lesson on discovering the Holocaust, I am going to provide each of you with your own Butterfly Journals . While using these journals, we are going to learn important information about The Holocaust and the children that were effected by it.
For this assignment you are going to participate in a web quest for "I Never Saw Another Butterfly“. There are a few pages that will require you to go to alternate links. Please see the next slide for that information.
Instructions to help you during the web quest:

You will need to go to the following link to learn the information about “Emil Lederer”: http://www.sitesofconscience.org/sites/accredited-members/terezin-memorial/how-is-it-remembered/emile-lederer
After investigating The Holocaust through the web quest “I Never Saw Another Butterfly”, we will create a butterfly for a child of the Holocaust. Each of you will be assigned to a child that went through the holocaust. Your assignment will be to decorate your butterfly to represent the child. The rubric for your butterfly is located on the next slide of the power point.
After we finish the butterflies, and present them to the class, we will display them in our pod. When we complete the unit for The Holocaust, we will find out the fate of our children. The children who died in the Holocaust will be removed. This will show you the reality of how many children were killed during this horrific time.
To further study the holocaust we are going to read the novel “Hana's Suitcase.”
Hana’s Suitcase Novel Study Timelines
During the novel study of Hana’s Suitcase, each of you will be provided with a booklet. The booklet will contain a timeline for Hana and George and a timeline for Fumiko. You will be responsible for filling in the timeline as we read the novel.
There will also be reflection questions in a portion of the booklet. The sections are as follows:
Hana and George’s Life in Nove Mesto (before the Nazis came to power)
Hana and George’s Life in Nove Mesto (after the Nazis came to power)
Hana and George’s Life in Theresienstadt
Hana’s Suitcase Audibiography
Hana’s Suitcase is like a biography. Make your biography in a scrap book using pictures or drawings that tell your story, much like the photo album George was able to preserve. Imagine that it will be found a long time in the future by an archeologist and write the archeologist’s comments upon finding such a valuable item! You could add pictures cut out of catalogues to show what we wear now or what things we do.
Create your own suitcase…
After completing the novel we will create our own suitcase. The suitcase can represent you, and the items you would take if you were taken away from your home.
The suitcase can represent Hana and the items she chose to take with her.
