One Thousand Tracings: Learning Activities

One Thousand Tracings: Healing the Wounds of World War II

I urge you to visit the wonderful website Lita Judge put together for more information about the relief effort her grandparents led to help thousands of struggling Europeans after WWII.

On the site, you can read letters Judge's grandmother translated from German to English, see pictures of more foot tracings, a timeline of WWII and the relief effort, a teacher's guide, and more.

This book could also be a great way to motivate your child (and your entire family) to participate in a service organization or contribute to relief effort (local or abroad) and help other families in need. The teachers guide on the website links to three organizations, but there are many many more out there.


  1. Thanks for looking at and mentioning the Tracings web site. You have a wonderfully informative blog!

  2. Hi Lita,
    Thanks so much for stopping by, and thank you for sharing your family's beautiful story.

  3. Whenever I read something about the WWII I feel so sad... definitely war is a crime.
