Daily Life During the Holocaustby Eve Nussbaum Soumerai
Synopses & Reviews
The Holocaust was a complex and horrifying experience that affected millions of people in Europe. The nearly 13 years of Nazi rule had an enormous influence on the day-to-day existence of people in every walk of life: Jews and non-Jews, perpetrators and rescuers, collaborators and resisters, officials and ordinary citizens. Nearly all of Europe's Jews were victims. Students, teachers, and interested readers can explore how the daily lives of these victims, despite their heroic efforts to survive and maintain a normal existence, became increasingly untenable and for most eventually ended in death. Along with the often harrowing details of life under the Nazis, emphasis is placed on uplifting accounts of resistance and the role of rescuers.
Book News Annotation:
Draws on the journals, diaries, photos, poetry, and personal testimony of survivors and victims of the Nazi Holocaust to present their stories as well as those of the victimizers, bystanders, and rescuers of the time. Follows the developing Nazification of Germany and its effects on the Jewish population, discussing ghetto relocation, the eventual deportation to concentration camps, life therein, liberation, and ultimately, the Nuremberg trials and aftermath of the Holocaust. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (firstname.lastname@example.org)
