Parallel Journeys: World War II and the Holocaust through the Eyes of Teens


Parallel Journeys: World War II and the Holocaust through the Eyes of Teens

Personal responsibility is a way of life. It does not arise out of a vacuum, but is built on ethical principles, which are the the basis of humanity itself. - George J. Wittenstin, White Rose Resistance Group

Parallel Journeys presents the stories of twenty young adults who were witnesses, participants, and often victims of World War II and the Holocaust. Anne Frank is one of the most famous teenagers in history and her diary has captured the hearts of readers across the world. Anne's story and others told in Parallel Journeys draw visitors into many different experiences of World War II and the Holocaust and demonstrate the realities of this brutal conflict.

Elie Wiesel, a survivor of Auschwitz surviver and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize; along with the White Rose resistance group; and Traudl Junge, Adolf Hitler's personal secretary, are featured alongside lesser-known teens and young adults who survived the concentrations camps, hid from the Nazis, led rescue efforts, served as soldiers, remained on the home front, or aided individuals who were targets of the Nazi oppression.
