Yom HaShoa- The Holocaust Remembrance Day starts in Israel on Monday, April 20th and here, in America, on Tuesday April 21st. I have put together an engaging and inspiring Zoom presentation for my Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection book, The Brave Cyclist: The True Story of a Holocaust Hero, illustrated by Chiara Fedele, published by Capstone. I have a program for ages 9-14 and for older kids as well as adults. Also, a lesson plan for grades 3-6
Watch this video, produced by World Jewish Congress about the book, and the journey that led me to writing about #GinoBartali, the righteous cycling champion who saved Jews during the Holocaust.
