The Holocaust: A History of Courage and Resistance

The Holocaust: A History of Courage and Resistance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In simple and moving words, this book for the intermediate grades tells the story of the Holocaust. The historical context of Hitler's rise to power is explored in depth, and the devastation of the Holocaust is presented authoritatively. This masterly book informs students without frightening or threatening them. Thoughtful discussion questions conclude each chapter.

Chapters include:

  • Night of the Broken Glass
  • The Judenrat Government
  • The Warsaw Ghetto
  • Women Fighters
  • Passover in a Concentration Camp
  • The Righteous Gentiles
  • Youth Aliyah and Aliyah Bet

    At the heart of this book are acts of courage and resistance; the stories of the men and women--young and old, Jewish and non-Jewish--who fought against Hitler and kept the Jewish spirit alive.
