In Attu Boy, Nick Golodoff was six years old when his peaceful life in a remote Aleutian village was interrupted by the invasion of the Japanese army in 1942.
How does Nick’s story of enemy invasion, occupation, and finally becoming a prisoner of war fit within the larger story of resiliency in Alaska History?
Because Nick tells his story through the eyes of a child, do you think resonate with students? In what way can this story be used in the classroom? Elementary and/or Secondary?
