The Complete Story of Sadako Sasaki by Masahiro Sasaki,Sue DiCicco Summary

For the first time, middle readers can learn the complete story of the courageous girl whose life, which ended through the effects of war, inspired a worldwide call for peace. In this book, author Sue DiCicco and Sadako's older brother Masahiro tell her complete story in English for the first time—how Sadako's courage throughout her illness inspired family and friends, and how she became a symbol of all people, especially children, who suffer from the impact of war. Her life and her death carry a message: we must have a wholehearted desire for peace and be willing to work together to achieve it. Sadako Sasaki was two years old when the atomic bomb was dropped on her city of Hiroshima at the end of World War II. Ten years later, just as life was starting to feel almost normal again, this athletic and enthusiastic girl was fighting a war of a different kind. One of many children affected by the bomb, she had contracted leukemia. Patient and determined, Sadako set herself the task of folding 1000 paper cranes in the hope that her wish to be made well again would be granted. Illustrations and personal family photos give a glimpse into Sadako's life and the horrors of war. Proceeds from this book are shared equally between The Sadako Legacy NPO and The Peace Crane Project.

Compte les étoiles by Lois Lowry Summary

1943. Pour Annemarie Johansen, la vie à Copenhague est un mélange compliqué de vie familiale, d'école, de rationnement alimentaire et d'occupation allemande. Le courage semble une vertu lointaine. Au moment où les Nazis commencent à organiser les déportations des Juifs du Danemark, les Johansen recueillent la meilleure amie d'Annemarie, Ellen Rosen, désormais présentée comme faisant partie de la famille. Ellen et Annemarie doivent réfléchir très vite lorsque les soldats perquisitionnent et demandent en pleine nuit pourquoi Ellen n'est pas blonde comme ses soeurs. À travers les yeux d'Annemarie nous voyons comment la résistance danoise réussit à faire traverser le bras de mer les séparant de la Suède à la quasi-totalité de la communauté juive, qui compte alors près de sept mille personnes.
