Mississippi morning by Ruth Vander Zee( Book )

Amidst the economic depression and the racial tension of the 1930s, a boy discovers a horrible secret of his father's involvement in the Ku Klux Klan. It was 1933 and life was good for James William. Piece by piece, however, his comfortable life begins to unravel. First he learns that the burning of a black man's house was not accidental. Then his fishing buddy LeRoy tells him about the hanging tree and the Klan. Though he accepts that blacks and whites can't drink from the same fountains because "that's the way it is," James William can't believe that racial hatred exists in his own community until he comes face to face with a Klan member. A thought-provoking story of one boy's loss of naivete in the face of harsh historical realities, Mississippi Morning will challenge young readers to question their own assumptions and confront personal decisions

Erikas Geschichte by Ruth Vander Zee( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein jüdisches Baby überlebt den Holocaust: Auf einer Bank sitzend kommt die Autorin mit einer Frau ins Gespräch und erfährt deren unglaubliche Geschichte. Geboren wurde sie 1944, als Kind jüdischer Eltern, irgendwo in Deutschland. Sie weiss weder ihren Namen, noch ihren Geburtstag, noch sonst etwas Persönliches. Ihre Eltern müssen mit Viehwaggons zu einem Konzentrationslager gebracht worden sein. Als der Zug bei einem Dorf langsam fahren musste, haben sie ihr Baby in einer Wolldecke aus dem Zug auf eine Wiese geworfen, ins Leben hinein. Das Kind wurde von einer Frau unter Lebensgefahr aufgenommen und liebevoll grossgezogen. Heute ist Erika, wie sie genannt wird, verheiratet und hat Enkelkinder. Die Geschichte ist mit sehr schlichten Worten erzählt und gerade darum ergreifend. Vieles aus der Schreckenszeit wird nur angedeutet. Darum meine ich, dass das Buch auch für jüngere Kinder schon zumutbar ist, wenn man sie damit nicht allein lässt. Eindrücklich sind auch die Bilder: Schwarzweiss, wie alte Fotos, nur das Kind und seine Umgebung sind farbig. Ab 8 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Irene Beglinger-Flückiger
