What do you know about the Holocaust? You might already know that is took place during World War II, Hitler and the Nazis were behind it, and millions of people were killed.
This historical book provides a thoughtful and age-appropriate introduction to an unimaginable event, the Holocaust.
As many as twelve million people were killed in Nazi death camps, six million of them were Jewish people. The Holocaust was a genocide on a scale that had never been seen before. Gail Herman tracks the rise of Hitler and the Nazis, whose fierce antisemitism led to humiliating anti-Jewish laws, then to ghettos all over Eastern Europe, and ultimately to the Final Solution. An elementary-school audience can take in this information in a readable, well-researched book that covers one of the most horrific times in history.
This installment in the New York Times bestselling series includes eighty carefully chosen illustrations and sixteen pages of black and white photographs suitable for young readers.
