Everything you need to understand or teach Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.
Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay is a work of fiction about a young girl, Sarah Starzynski, who was collected in France during the roundup of Jews in July 16, 1942, when the French police arrested thousands of Jews throughout Paris. The girl and her family were sent to an internment camp where people were held before being sent to Auschwitz where they were executed.
The story surrounds two time periods: 1942 and 2002. All of the main story and action takes place in Paris. The two stories alternate throughout the book. By alternating both points of view, de Rosnay allows the reader to learn factual information and also go on an emotional journey. As the book progresses, the stories tie together until they become one.
Julia Jaramond, an American journalist living in Paris, is assigned to cover the sixtieth anniversary of Vel' d'Hiv', a former stadium turned holding facility for Jews...
