I have to write a thesis for the book Les Enfants d'Izieu and I am struggling to come up with something. Can anyone give me suggestions or ideas?
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Your thesis will depend upon what it is you wish to say or proove. This is another atrocity of World War II, against the Jews, specifically 44 children who were exterminated along with their teachers. Are you writing this in French or English? There is a museum dedicated to these children.
I am writing it in French. I'm not really sure what to prove or disprove.
Les vies d'enfants de Forty-four ont été emportées déraisonnablement dans holocauste.
D'accord. Thank you for getting back to me. 44 = quarante=quatre. Exterminés (masculine plural) is the word for exterminated. Be sure to use the article with l'holocauste.
Here are some sites that will help you with some of the French. Although you will see the Passé Simple, I'm sure you are not using that:

Just imagine what those children felt and endured and you might write as though you were one of them.
