Fictional Tale Deepening Children’s Understanding of the Holocaust

Designed for iPad by paragrafo blu, Auschwitz, A Tale of Wind familiarizes children with the story of the Holocaust. Delicate, touching narrative is paired with illustrations, animations, and music. Extra features include maps and a historical timeline. The app tells the story of a father and his two children, Didier and Jou Jou, and their deportation to Auschwitz. Simply, delicately, the tale encourages young readers to develop questions and seek answers about the tragedy of the extermination camps. The tragedy, however, is only suggested, looming in the background of a captivating, graceful, and poetic first-person narrative. The app includes a timeline of the Nazi persecution of Jews and of the Holocaust, as well as two maps of the main extermination camps and the Jewish ghettos—all of which serve to help parents and teachers explain the fictional tale and move beyond the text to deepen children’s understanding of the surrounding history.
