Jewish Values: Would You Salute? One Child's Story of the Holocaust

Publisher: 
Publication Year:

Number of Pages: 
48 p.
Note: 
Sepia-toned illustrations complement the text of this story of a girl growing up in Germany during Hitler's rise to power. Readers are challenged to think about what they would have done in a similar situation by considering questions like: Would you salute to Hitler in school along with all of the other teachers and students? Would you watch as soldiers abuse an elderly Jewish man on the street? During the course of the war Margot's Jewish father commits suicide in order to save his wife and child from persecution. With many difficult issues to tackle, the book's picture book format is deceptive.
