I also teach The Devil's Arithmetic. This year I found out about The Auschwitz Album, which is a multimedia presentation about Hungarian Jews arriving at Auschwitz. It has amazing archival photographs, narration,quotes, and some sensory sound clips. I show it to the students just as the characters in the book are traveling in the box car to the camp. It really enhances their sensory experience. Just go to google and enter Auschwitz album.
