Students are reading "The Diary of Anonymous Girl," which describes a family's devastating hunger during food rationing in Poland's Lodz ghetto. With help from Classrooms Without Borders, Pittsburgh-area middle school students are learning first hand what the well-worn phrase "I'm starving" meant for teens who actually lived that terror.
