Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book works for the same reason that every book in the "Eyewitness" series does: it's crammed with information that's given in small blocks, with numerous illustrations to back up the facts. The history of "one of the oldest world religions" is packed with intriguing tidbits of information, such as the fact that Jews had to pay special taxes during the Middle Ages, or that pogroms against the Jews in Russia were commonplace. Since kids are obsessed with fairness, these pieces of history will help them understand the campaign of persecution that has followed the Jews for thousands of years. The section devoted to the Holocaust wisely includes a photo of children peering through the barbed wire of a concentration-camp fence, an image that drives home the message of Hitler's Final Solution. But the book isn't only about sorrow. The beauty and power of Judaism is beautifully portrayed, and beautifully illustrated with works of art and photographs of religious objects and synagogues. It's an excellent reference work, but it reads as well as a storybook. 2003, DK Publishing Inc, Ages 8 up.
