by Joshua M. GreeneThis book could easily be compared to a "Cliffs Notes" version of the Holocaust. With a concise chronological layout and salient points throughout, it is a fairly short read. But don't think because it won't take a month to read that it doesn't have substance; it does. For those seeking insight into what life was like for the Jews of Europe during the conquest of the Third Reich, this is an unvarnished record of the fear, the terror, and the resilience of those people. The recollections of survivors are graphic, poignant, and thought-provoking. This is an excellent resource to round out any study of World War II but, though many of the survivors were between the ages of 8 and 11 when they were interned, the horrific cruelty described makes this book inappropriate for children. Parents should review the book first and, if I may suggest, read it aloud and discuss. It's important that this not be forgotten.
