The other text set available for teachers in English II is to use Rena’s Promise, a memoir by Rena Kornreich Gelissen. Rena was on the first transport of women to Auschwitz concentration camp, along with her sister, and survived for years in the death camp. Just as with Night, the lessons available with Rena’s Promise are standards-based and built to help prepare students for the English II EOC. The perspective of a female’s experience at Auschwitz also makes this memoir a fitting companion text for teaching Night if teachers choose to use an excerpt from Rena’s Promise to teach alongside Night. This text would need to be purchased for teachers to use in the classroom.
You can access the curriculum resources below by turning the pages in the flipbook or downloading it.
