The Holocaust Survivors

by Tabatha Yeatts

The Holocaust Survivors delves into both the struggles of Holocaust survivors to rebuild their lives after liberation and the complexities of the search for justice. It traces the liberation of the concentration camps through the creation of Israel, survivors building new lives, and ways that the Holocaust is remembered. Also covered are the Nuremberg Trials, Nazi hunters, and Nazi war criminals in the United States, as well as an overview of the Holocaust itself. The Holocaust Survivors discusses the repercussions of this human tragedy and the importance of the lessons that the Holocaust holds for today and the future. It includes a glossary, index, photographs, maps, source notes, further reading, and a chronology.

The Holocaust Survivors was chosen as a Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People 1999 by the National Council for Social Studies (NCSS) in cooperation with The Children's Book Council (CBC).

"Highly recommended."
