Tara's Poem

Tara has been reading a book,  based on a true story about a French village that successfully conspired to hide Jewish children during the Second World War, called Hiding Edith by Kathy Kacer.  

She  has written a poem based on this story:

Edith is running,

 But the Nazi's are coming,

To Moissac she must escape

Before it's too late


There they promise protection

Being safe from detection,

But Edith is suspicious

That trusting the entire town is ambitious,

Especially when her life depends

On the trustworthiness of her new friends.


Will Edith ever see her family again?

Or have they been taken by German men?


Thanks for sharing you poem Tara.
