Jewish Values: Jewish Victims of the Holocaust, The

Publication Year: 
Number of Pages: 
104 p.
This is part of a new series called "The Holocaust in History." The series incorporates information from other books published by Enslow and adds new information, shaping the series for younger readers. The sentences are simple and declarative and the text fairly succinct; the format includes a larger print, more white space, and half page photographs of excellent quality. Information in this book includes a brief history of the Holocaust, a brief history of anti-Semitism, the ghettos of Eastern Europe, the organization of genocide, concentration camps, and why the Germans persisted in their slaughter of Jews up until the very end of the war in Europe. Many survivors are quoted and attention is paid to the dilemma of those in the Judenrat, the Jewish council in the ghettos, and the Jewish police force.
