Historical relevance

Posted by: Margaret Lincoln // Category: Historical time period // 9:48 am

After last week’s excellent start to the blogging project, online discussion continues with posts focusing on historical relevance, life and religion, the power of good, and the power of evil. We look forward to your comments.

  1. How would you describe the lives of European Jews (such as the Weissmann family) before the onset of World War II?
  2. In what ways were daily lives changed following the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939?
  3. What major events of World War II occurred while Gerda was in custody?
  4. What would Gerda’s reaction have been if she had known about these events?
