The Holocaust in Literature for Youth provides classroom teachers and public and school librarians a practical, comprehensive resource guide to all of the literature available for children and young adults on the subject.
In addition to books about the Holocaust, there is a section called Making Connections, which lists works pertaining to themes and other genocides and historical events that can easily be tied to any study of the Holocaust. Activities and lesson plans that address a number of curriculum areas may be used in their entirety or as springboards for the educator's own supplementary material.
Holocaust education should be more than just the study of the names, dates, and places; it must go beyond the superficial highlights of the textbooks. To that end, the author has included a listing of Internet and electronic resources for educators and their students; a directory of museums and other educational organizations that can provide further information and support; and extensive references to professional resources that can be used by educators at all levels to help them shape their curriculum and teaching strategies. An outstanding resourcewell-organized and informative.
