Surviving the Holocaust and Saving the Jews “Heroes of the Holocaust True Stories of Rescues by Teens” By: Allan Zullo and Mara Bovsun is how Christian and Jewish teens helped to save the Jews from the Nazis. They risked their lives to save other people’s lives and throughout the book everyone knew the risk they were taking and what the consequences would be if they were caught by the German Nazis. The major themes/messages that the authors of the book wrote were that no one should be treated differently because they believe and practice different religion. Another one would be that you can’t treat someone poorly and throw them somewhere where they will not be able to survive. The last message would be that you should always be willing to help someone in need when they need help. Even though someone practices a different religion from you doesn’t mean that they should be treated poorly. Everyone should be treated equally and no one should have their rights taken away from them because they are jewish. I really liked this book because I got to read the experiences the teens had while they were helping to escape the Nazis cruelty. I also liked that I could learn about some of the history of the holocaust and while reading the stories I could imagine in my mind what they were all going through and the parents in the book were more worried about their children than themselves. I could also imagine how the jews were being treated and I can understand why they wanted to leave their homes and try to start a new life in Switzerland or they immigrated to the United States. I also liked that all of the stories had a good ending for the jews they helped to rescue from the Nazis. The dislike about this book were some of the stories in the book were kind of long. Some of the would even make you cry when you are really into the book because it’s so hard to imagine that the 1930s and 1940s was when the holocaust started because Adolf Hitler didn’t like the jews. I just didn’t think that if was fair and it wasn’t right that the Nazis would go into different countries that surrounded them and decide to take away of the iews and not let me practice their religion and what they believe in their religion. Someone should read this book because it’s a really good book and you can learn what the all the teens went through to save other people’s lives when they knew they would be killed if they got caught they the Nazi Germans. My overall rating of this book would be it’s a very good book but there some emotional parts in the book. I really enjoyed reading this book and learning about the experiences from the teen in the stories.
