Publication Year: 
Number of Pages: 
0 p.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum archives of survivor testimony, as well as archival photographs, provide the bulk of the information in this series called True Stories of Teens in the Holocaust. Each book averages seven chapters and includes a concise index, excellent internet resources, a list for further reading which includes books about the reading level of the text, a short glossary, and a timeline of events pertinent to the subject of the book. The chapter notes are also at the end of the book. Generally, this is a solid series with a lot of eyewitness accounts, so there are less concrete facts and more personal perspectives than other historical series. In this book, Anne Frank provides the context, as readers learn the challenges of strategic timing in fleeing and/or hiding; of making arrangements and finding shelter; of the fear of being caught. The text discusses different hiding places, using false identities, and dealing with Gentile protectors.
