survivors: true stories of holocaust
This fast read is excellent, a grand history of how Jews have built a stronghold for generations to come. This book is a great review of learning to walk in their shoes for both adults and children to keep in their personal collections and pass onto future families. America needs "more" of these true accounts. Thank you Walmart for making this book available for public reading.
This book is for emoti...
This book is for emotionally mature students who can handle reading about the torture of nine Jewish children during the Holocaust. Each of this kids did make it through their horrible ordeal to tell their stories, but they witnessed much suffering and bore witness to a sort of living hell. Some of them managed to escape, some pretended to be someone else. This book would be a good companion story when learning about this topic in history. It would also be a good multicultural book and can be compared to other races and religions that have been persecuted.

This book is very touching and grabs you from the start. Reading personally stories about children in the HOlocaust is a tear jerker. I'd reccomend this to anyone who likes touching and heartwarming yet a string puller book.
I read Survivors: Tru...
I read "Survivors: True Stories of Children in the Holocaust" because I am extremely interested in the Holocaust and my son had purchased this book from his book fair at school and was lying around. He is in the 7th grade. The book looked interesting and it was a short read so I gave it a go. The book in itself was interesting. However, the writing is obviously geared toward my son's age. The stories contain enough information in them that young teenagers definitely get a good understanding of the horrors that these Jewish children in particular as well as the Jews at the time endured and very few survived. For an adult, the book is very topical being that it is for young readers. There are obviously other Holocaust reads that will better suit adults. Again, as I stated earlier I read this because it was lying around and it was a short read on an interest of mine. I am giving this book a four star rating for young readers; however I don't really recommend it for adults if you are looking for something with substance. I would recommend "Night" by Elie Wiesel or "The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten Boom for adults. For young adults, "The Book Thief" by Markus Zuzak, "Milkweed" by Jerry Spinelli, "The Devil's Arithmetic" by Jane Yolen or "Number the Stars" by Lois Lowry.
