Conference Proceeding: The Who-What-Where of Holocaust Children’s Literature: The Holocaust Kidlit Database

In this presentation, Holocaust children’s literature scholar Barbara Krasner debuts and demonstrates her searchable database on This resource inventories literature published since 2002 and includes fields for genre, age group, place of publication, geographical scope of the narrative, and category (i.e., flight, resistance, occupation, death camps, rescue, and return). She discusses the results of quantitative analysis to identify trends in the literature and potential gaps and highlights selections among picture books, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for younger, older, and young adult readers.
