Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card (4 weeks)

War and Genocide are realities that are difficult to understand. Oftentimes, the beginnings of these terrible events are the separation of “them” and “us.” It is the presentation of “the other.” Those who act or think differently than ourselves. Ender’s Game is unique among alien vs. human science fiction novels in that it raises deep ethical questions about the nature of “the other.” This book helps the youth of today gain an understanding of the inherent dangers of generalizing any group of people. The danger in creating “the other.” 


Night, by Elie Wiesel (4 weeks)

"For the Dead and the living we must bear witness.” This quote by Elie Wiesel captures the reason we must learn of this terrible time in history. When the worst that humanity could become was realized. One holocaust writing entry winner said of Night:  “Although students know the facts of the Holocaust, as it is taught in most history classes, the attention to detail is often overlooked. Night gives a chilling first-hand account of the horrors that the Jewish people faced at the hand of the Nazis. The personal thoughts of Wiesel give insight to how the Jewish people reacted to the situation of the concentration camps and how some lost their faith because of it. This novel assists students in coming to understand and appreciate a portion of history better than most textbooks."


The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak (4 weeks)

How could the people allow this terrible event to occur? This is a question often asked when learning about this time in human history. On the back cover of this novel we read: “It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.” Many will be thinking this is another Holocaust novel and that you’ve already read too many of those depressing books. The thing that distinguishes this book from any other such literature is that it offers one German family’s politically incorrect perspective during this infamous and well-documented era. It allows us to see into what was happening to the people who didn't just study this country, at this time... but who lived it.
