A wonderful tribute to the families and the survivors of the Holocaust. Perfect way to educate youth on the holocaust through portraits and chronological information. The photos in this book help to bring the reader closer to the victims, and let them have a sense of the tremendous loss the Jewish

community faced. A reality check for those who were too young to remember.
This book drew me in and held me spellbound. One can read books and hear stories from history class, but until you see some of the photos in this book and see the actual faces it doesn't come close. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to "lightly" get an idea of the holocaust, and is a great book to share with middle school age children as a starting point. I would love to own this book for my own personal library.
As a classroom extension, I would use this book as a hands on reader to coincide with the text book. I would ask children how they felt about the situation and basically let them talk about their feelings and emotions. I would bring up how certain people (Jews) can be treated so unfairly simply because of their beliefs or religion. This would be a very delicate subject and would have to be handled with much care and consideration and family input prior to a lesson being taught.

The first thing I noticed, flipping through the book absently, were the photographs. Faces and homes, side stories that will make you ache for those you are reading about. Having visited the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. and also the D-Day Museum here in New Orleans, read the stories

and watched the movies, it is nevertheless the photographs that truly capture my heart. The innocence we see in school pictures as the journey begins, the events unfolding with each new page turned. This would be a wonderful book to share with a middle school or high school class, especially as a companion to reading something like Night or Number the Stars. I would recommend this as a companion, a good book to offer students who are fascinated by this time in history.
