Note: 
Part of a series that explores U.S. history, The Holocaust Museum discusses the history of the Shoah and how it is interpreted and remembered at the well-known Washington, D.C. museum. Written in crisp, declarative, unemotional language, with effective sepia-toned historic photographs, this book is recommended reading before visiting the museum. It will be particularly useful in school settings as part of studies in history, current events, and human rights. In the history section, however, there is no analysis of German citizens’ role in the Holocaust; the blame is placed entirely on the Nazi Party, the German government, and Hitler as dictator. Supplemental materials – e.g. glossary, timeline, mini-biographies, resources at the library and on the web – are helpful additions.
