1 I Have Lived A Thousand Years By Livia Bitton-Jackson

2 Separation Identity Evacuation Liquidation Riot Starvation Decimation Immigration Home Setting Rising Action Climax Falling Action Resolution

3 Separation Home Photo Courtesy Of In the Holocaust, families were separated and sometimes never found each other. No matter how hostile a German soldier was, or what impact the Holocaust had, a family is still a family. In our book, Elli, her brother, and her mom are separated from their father. Then later separated from her brother.

4 Identity Home Photo Courtesy Of content/uploads/2010/01/nazi-tattoo-jewish- content/uploads/2010/01/nazi-tattoo-jewish- This was done so that the Jews couldnt have an identity, and for pure humiliation. In Auschwitz, and almost every other concentration camp, heads were shaved, and clothes were taken away. In almost every concentration camp, the inmates were required to get numbers tattooed on their arms. It was their new identity.

5 Evacuation Home When the Nazis invaded Budapest, close to our characters home town, things soon started changing for them. At first, most Jews are sent to ghettos. Evacuation was quick, and Elli and her mom lost a lot of their personal possessions while moving from home to the ghetto. Photo Courtesy Of: 5/jewishCHILDREN-Poland.GIF

6 Ghettos Home Photo Courtesy Of: After Jews were forced to evacuate their homes, they were crammed into ghettos. In our book, the Nagymagyar Ghetto had one public bathroom, kitchen, and shower. Sometimes, twelve or more people were put into one room, or two small rooms.

7 Riot Home Photo courtesy of In our book, riots were caused whenever somebody didnt listen to an SS officer. It may seem like not a big deal for one girl to get shot, but it effected most of the people, and sometimes they would kill a whole Block. A young girl got worked about about not finding her mother, and not having a bed, so the SS officer shot her.

8 Starvation Home Photo courtesy of One of the main causes of death in the Holocaust was starvation. Elli and the rest of her block were given one small bowl of soup. Her and her mother were lucky to get even a spoonful of soup, because others would be so hungry.

9 Decimation Home Photo courtesy of Decimation is when SS officers take 10 people, line them up, and shoot them. Decimation took place because one person, or a whole block committed sabotage. For example, in our book it started to rain. All the Auschwitz inmates stood in the rain because they had been working so hard. The rain was their relief.

10 Immigration Home Photo courtesy of After Elli and her mom endure all the unnecessary pain, they move back home. They find their home town in ruins. Like most Jews who survived, they found out the devastating aftermath of the Holocaust. Once they knew that they were some of the only Jews in their family who survived, they immigrated to America.

11 Setting Our book first takes place in Somorja, Hungary, in Home Nothing has gone wrong, and Elli is still in school. Her brother goes off to school, and everything is well. Photo Courtesy Of 44_Administrative_Map.png/800px-Hungary_ _Administrative_Map.png

13 Rising Action Home The first conflict they face is having to move from their homes to the Nagymagyar Ghetto. They face the challenges of everyday life in the ghetto with people they dont know. The greatest challenge they faced was moving from the ghetto to Auschwitz and enduring unnecessary pain.

14 Climax Home When the SS officers invade, everything turns for the worst. They are put on trains, and shot at. When Elli survives the shooting, we knew she was going to live through it all.

15 Falling Action Home Our falling action occurs when Elli, her mom, and her brother get back to their hometown. When they get home, they see the devastating results of the Nazi's, and receive a letter from their uncle. They also find about their father's death.

16 Resolution Home The resolution in our book is that Elli, her mother, and her brother make it out safely, are reunited, and the immigrate to America.

17 A Life Lesson As you read this, remember that six million innocent people died, as everyone else stood by and watched. Even though you aren't a victim, don't be a bystander. Stand up for what is right, even if it means standing alone.
