Help me find words for a glossary project on The Devil's Arithmetic.

I will get you started on some, but you can do this yourself with ease, I believe. Just think about the subject of the story - it is about the Holocaust, as you know - and you should easily be able to come up with some words.

A -Aliyah - this is a Jewish word that refers to Jews immigrating back to Israel. It is part of the Zionist belief that one day, all Jews should return to the Holy Land. I think you should include some Jewish words in your assignment.

B -Black - the Nazi uniforms are black and the train cars that transport Jews to the death camps are black.

C - Chaya - Hannah's Hebrew name

D - Death camps - the concentration camps were called "death camps"

E - Elijah - part of passover includes welcoming the prophet Elijah

See, it is easy!

Read the information here on eNotes and you can do the rest yourself.
