1. Daniel's Story by Carol Matas
This was a particularly good book. It is fairly short and really depicts the Holocaust
through the eyes of a young Jewish boy. Very well written for all ages.
2. The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank
This is probably the most realistic book you'll read next to the Bible. That's no wonder
because it is the second best selling book in the world next to....well....the Bible. A
great nonfiction book that tells how things really were.
3. Parallel Journeys by Eleanor Ayers
A very well written book that shows both views of the horror of World War II. You go
through the war in Helen's eyes, a young Jewish woman, and Alfons eyes, a fanatic
member of the Hitler Youth. Has a great view of the Holocaust.
4. Night by Elie Wiesel
Another very real book told by a survivor of the Holocaust. Elie Wiesel is very famous today
and is best known for Night. Contains very moving descriptions of concentration camp life.
5. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
A book for younger readers (under 12) that shows a view of the Holocaust not often seen.
Great for younger children because it does not yet reveal the horrors of the death camps.
1. "Anne Frank"
This made for TV movie can be purchased at some stores and over the internet. (Amazon.com) Difficult to find, but an incredible movie that depicts the Holocaust
incredibly. Shows what Anne's life was like before she went into hiding, and what
2. "Schindler's List"
Very graphic movie, but incredibly moving. One of the best movies of all time under the
direction of Steven Spielberg. It is rated R for almost everything. Contains a lot of nudity, but
not at all in a bad way, language, violence, and very graphic and intense scenes. Tells the story of Oskar Schindler who desperately tried to save thousands of Jews, and did.
Awesome movie if you want to know what the Holocaust was really like.
