|Level V / Grade 5-6
What was life like during World War II?
World War II was a difficult time for Jews in the US. Although they were safe from physical danger—unlike their relatives in Europe—anti-Semitism was a serious and growing problem. Food items were rationed, and many men were drafted into the army. In this engrossing book, children will learn about the daily life of Jews during World War II—the homes they lived in, the foods they ate, the schools they went to, the work they did, and the games they played. Jewish Life in America during World War II is part of The Way It Was, a series of fascinating books about everyday Jewish life in American history.
Each volume includes authentic photos and eyewitness accounts as well as engaging text and design.
