Book Review - The Wave

By creating a new school movement, a history teacher tries to help his students understand the kind of thinking that could lead average Germans to follow Hitler in World War II. Based on a true story, The Wave presents a disturbing look at how seductive a sense of belonging and comradeship can be and how quickly a mob mentality can spiral out of control. While I found the story a bit dated, I still think it has an interesting message to offer, and I can see it having cross-curricular possibilities.
