Transcript of Yellow Star

Yellow Star
Jennifer Roy
Syvia, Dora, Papa, Mother, Itka, and Hava. All of these characters are Jewish.



Characters:
In 1939 the Germans invaded the town of Lodz, Poland, and moved all of the Jews into a ghetto. There was not a lot of food and winters were harsh. Syvia and her family were one of the many who got moved there. Families get sent on trains to go to a "better" place. Once people in the Ghetto realize where the trains were really going to concentration camps and death camps, everyone tries to escape. The Nazis invade and take all the children, or so they thought. A few of the families had decided to hide their children. At the beginning of the war 270,000 people lived in the ghetto, only 800 survived. Out of all those people there were only 12 children. Was Syvia one of them? Read Yellow Star to find out.
