Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Victoria Yablonsky
The Holocaust Ghettos explains the role that ghettos played in the Nazi strategy to isolate and control the Jewish population under German rule while setting the stage for the "final solution." In chronicling the rise of the ghettos, Altman also provides some historical background on anti-Semitism in Europe and discusses the more general issue of the danger of racism and hatred. She presents a realistic picture through personal stories of the hardships and horrors of ghetto life and also includes some analysis of the motivations of the Nazis and the Jewish ghetto leaders. The Holocaust Camps sets the stage for the rise of Hitler and describes the legal basis the Nazis claimed to justify their inhuman acts. Byers documents the establishment of prison camps and the Nazi use of terror for political control. She follows with an explanation of the eventual movement to forced labor camps and extermination camps as a means of eliminating the Jews. From Dachau to Auschwitz, she concentrates on the "special treatment" accorded the Jews without omitting the other groups of people interned in the camps. She also gives examples of the many large and small ways resistance took place. The descriptions of camp life and the graphic details of torture, gas chambers, and crematoriums paint a clear picture of the daily brutality endured by all. Both titles, part of The Holocaust Remembered series, provide good introductions to the topics in a consistent format and in language and length accessible to students. Filled with facts and details about the horrors of the Holocaust, the narratives also tell a moving story of man's inhumanity to man. Other titles in the series include The Holocaust Heroes, The Holocaust Survivors, and The Holocaust Overview. If the quality of these two titles is representative of the entire series, it will make an excellent addition to all YA collections. It will also serve as a valuable accompaniment to many of the recently published Holocaust memoirs and novels such as Schoschana Rabinovici's Thanks to My Mother (Dial, 1998/VOYA April 1998) which discusses life in the Vilnius ghetto.

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-After providing the background of the persecution of Jews and other people considered undesirable by Hitler and his followers from 1933 on, Altman describes the method used to isolate them. She explains how the ghettos were governed; the unwitting complicity of Jewish administrators in carrying out Nazi orders; and the struggle of the inhabitants to maintain their spirit, humanity, schools, and culture. The story is told with compassion, but errors in the introduction mar what would otherwise be a highly recommended book. In addition, there is an inadequate explanation of the conditions under which a new law had been passed combining the offices of chancellor and president in Germany in 1934. The law was not merely fortuitous for Hitler; it was planned by him. None of these errors are found in the second volume. Byers correctly describes the dismal economic conditions in Germany after World War I, the resentment at the government that surrendered, the continued militarism and nationalism, and the ethnic unrest that continued to fester there. Life in the concentration camps, liberation, and subsequent war-crimes trials are vividly described. This is a thorough and accurate book.-Marcia W. Posner, Holocaust Memorial and Educational Center of Nassau County, Glen Cove, NY
