The Soldier and the Time Traveler

Beth is a present-day teen who is infuriated by her history teacher’s denial of the holocaust. Beth has heard stories from her Jewish great-grandfather Sam. Beth time-travels back to 1945 to accompany Sam, 19, through the last 5 months of WWII Europe and the liberation of Dachau. While there, Beth encounters 2 teen girls and discovers what happened to German girls who lived in the war ravaged villages. Beth also discovers why Sam went to war. The story is based on actual letters from Sam to his wife Lois. It creates both political and historic links between 1945 and the present time.
