More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Mark Letcher
The Great Escapes series, consisting of five volumes, explores a variety of human and natural atrocities. Aside from the two volumes reviewed here, The Underground Railroad and The Holocaust, the series covers the 19th -century Irish potato famine, the Sudanese Lost Boys, and the Khmer Rouge. Topics are presented through historical and personal lenses, using individual stories of those who escaped these horrors as frames for the broader details and ramifications of the events. Fradin's presentation of the Underground Railroad effectively describes the history of the slave trade in the United States, as well as the laws, uprisings, and rebellions that contributed to the dangerous movement of slaves to Northern states and Canada. Accounts from escaped slave and abolitionist William Wells Brown add powerful perspective. Perl's account of the Holocaust offers the usual facts and horrific details of life and death in Auschwitz, while also providing a close look at the daring 1944 escape of Vrba and Wetzler, whose firsthand account of the concentration camp's inner workings would open the world's eyes to Hitler's Final Solution. These are excellent introductions to key historical events, each book consistently written at a level accessible for middle school students, yet with additional resources and bibliographic information that would aid older readers and researchers as well. The personal accounts are an interesting way to present each topic, while shedding light on historical figures not always mentioned in textbooks. Each author demonstrates how research can be done comprehensively, and in an engaging style. The relatively narrow focuses of each volume will likely limit appeal to those who are conducting research, but these books should be read and appreciated beyond class assignments. (Great Escapes) Reviewer: Mark Letcher
Children's Literature - Remy Dou
The discrimination and disregard for human life that characterized the Holocaust should never be repeated. Concerned citizens should remember the atrocities that defined this event so that future generations learn from past generations' mistakes. This book boldly attempts to broach and cover a difficult topic. The text follows the gripping, passionate escape of Rudolph Vrba and Alfred Wetzler from the infamous concentration camp known as Auschwitz. As a result of their successful escape and subsequent reporting, the world learned of the horrors these two men saw and suffered at Auschwitz. Despite the occasional choppy transition, Perl's mastery for language resounds. Yet, the complex style does not take into account the reading and comprehension level of children in the grades this book appears to target. The story also makes references to an overwhelming number of people, countries, and events without providing proper background to young readers who may just be learning about the Holocaust for the first time. On a positive note, the images support the text while not depicting the revolting scenes often associated with the Holocaust. Older teens may find this installment of the "Great Escapes" series thorough and engaging in its description of Vrba and Wetzler's experiences. Reviewer: Remy Dou
