International Book Sharing Project
Schools are paired off from Israel and the United States as they collaborate on the project and discuss the book and its themes.
Book Sharing Project Forum
The Korczak School website serves as the online home for the International Book Sharing Project. The International Book Sharing Project is an exercise in international cooperative learning about the Shoah (Holocaust) and its meaning for youth today. Schools from around the world are paired together. Students in the partner schools read the same book in their respective classrooms and then discuss subjects related to the Holocaust via forums hosted on the Korczak International School website.
