This book was very sad, and it made the story of the holocaust even more real, if possible. It was nice to put faces to all of the stories heard about this time in history. ( )

"This book is dedicated to the children whose lives ended during the Holocaust and to the photographers, known and unknown, who risked their lives to record their story." Book Dedication

These are compelling photos who tell the story of the Holocaust's impact on the children.

I have mixed feelings about this book. I think that it is a great way to show children what people have had to go through, but I feel that some of the pictures are a little too much for young children.

Summary: A story of Jewish Children During WW1, and the Holocaust. It tells of the hardships that these children faced. The persecution that they endured. Hunger, cold, and even death.

Personal Review: The pictures were real, and not some drawings from someones mind. Actual real pictures that stired up real emotions. The pictures showed the depth of the suffering that these children had to endure. A true trubitue to the strenght of survival.

Classroom extensions: Can be used for history to show that everybody suffers in war. Can be used to show the harsh relaities of racism and hate

Through moving photographs from the Yad Vashem Archives in Jerusalem, Israel, archivist Chana Byers Abells has created an unforgettable essay about the children who lived and died during the Holocaust. While it is a story of death and loss, it is also a story of courage and endurance, a story to be shared with today's children.
