You left out a book

You left out a wonderful Holocaust reference book, by the name of "Heroes of Spirit" by Dovid Hoffman, from Israel Book Shop, came out in 2009.

appropriate ages please

I am looking for appropriate holocaust books for my young teen to read. It would be helpful if you put in some sort of guide to contents, or age appropriateness (or maturity level). Thanks

MISSING: a great Holocaust book!

Dear Friends,

You need to add to your list of Holocaust Books: "Through the Eyes of a Survivor", Top Cat Press, by Colette Waddell.

suggested book for bibliography

In 1997 I edited and co-authored my mother's story - published by G.P.Putnam's, then in paperback by Penguin Berkely and now in German. It was listed on the top 10 list for younger readers. It would be great to see it on the biblio. Title: THE SEAMSTRESS: A MEMOIR OF SURVIVAL. by Sara Tuvel Bernstein

Thanks, Jorge (Spain)
