Jace- The book I read is called "The Boy on the Wooden Box". My book is about a boy named Leon Leyson and his family that lived in Poland, then his family ended up moving to Krakow because his dad got a job in a glass making factory. After a while of getting used to his new home the war started and things got complicated. And a short time later, the remaining Jews and his family were transferred to a closed off ghetto at the edge of the city. The ghetto was so crowded that there were sanitation and disease problems. However, they managed to survive until the Nazis decided it was time to purge even the ghetto. Eventually the ghetto was completely cleared out and the Jews were taken to the work camp, Plaszow. Leyson had a hard time in this camp and was afraid he would not survive.

Burning of the Books


Juliana- Burning of the books was to take knowledge away from the Jewish. In my book they do this is Germany and the other countries so no one can write against what Hitler is doing.

Lexi- In my book they thought the jewish having knowledge was power and that they could outsmart their plans. They then had days where they would burn books. In my book Hahn had to quit school to hide from being taken away


Jace- The burning of the books was not present in the book "The Boy on the Wooden Box".

Dystopic Elements


Juliana- When they burned the books they were taking away the knowledge. They were also using propaganda so the would go to the camps and so the Nazis could coverup what they were doing.



Jace- In the book "The Boy on the Wooden Box" Leon is going through some rough times because of the war. He has been forced to do some hard labor for the Nazis like build other concentration camps. The war is also affecting his health because they feed them very little portions, and make them do hard work which leads to him being very malnourished.



Juliana- In my book Hindenburg dies and Hitler declares the presidency dormant and transfers full powers to himself. This is when he starts making the camps killing the Jewish and invading other countries. Then on April 30, 1945 Hitler dies after having 11 million people killed.

Lexi- Because of Hitlers rules against the Jewish, Hahn had to be on the run for hiding purposes. This caused her to leave her schooling, family, and the town she loved.
