The following resources should prove to be very good supplements to the reading of Sarah’s Key.
1. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is a principal resource. Readers will make many individual discoveries by browsing this site, which will ultimately take them to others. Highly recommended is the First Person Podcast Series told by Holocaust survivors. Given the French focus of Sarah’s Key, readers should find Margit Meissner’s “Flight from Paris on a Bicycle” to be very interesting. You can find this podcast and others at:
The Jewish Virtual Library (A Division of The American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise) has a lot of information about the Drancy Transit Camp. You can find this information at
Wikipedia can also serve as a point of departure for all kinds of research initiatives.
2. For reactions to the novel itself, readers can review other readers’ responses to the reading journey by going to:
