Press Reviews

An excellent book ... It tackles a very difficult subject very well and is aimed at children aged 9 and over, but I also think it's good for parents to read to explain to their (older) children.
Annalisa Barbieri - The Guardian
Sensitively handled to be age-appropriate... A vivid and compelling account which will raise many questions in children's minds.
Parents in Touch
Written sensitively and movingly.
Coventry Telegraph
The Holocaust by Susanna Davidson is a sensitively written account... The book contains powerful photographic images and archive documents to help highlight the horrors of the Holocaust. It provides an excellent introduction to the subject whilst handling the topic delicately enough as to not upset children.
Adventures in Homeschooling
It’s simple to understand, crams a mass of information into short digestible chunks, and does its very best to explain a seemingly inexplicable event.
Minerva Reads

Reader Reviews

Very Sad Book
This was a very sad book. But it was still a good one. The saddest part was when Chaim Hirszman had to shave his own wife's hair. I would rate this book at a 9/10.
