VOYA - Ellen Frank
Kristallnacht takes readers through the horror of November 7-10, 1938 by describing the terror through the eyes of ten victims and perpetrators of the period. The Holocaust is not just the story of six million, but it is the experience of each individual who lived during World War II. The book documents people from history, both evil and innocent. Some of the people portrayed are Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's mastermind; Jurgen Herbst, a Hitler youth; and Herschel Grynspan, the scapegoat who the Germans claimed was the spark who caused Krystallnacht. The Holocaust Through Primary Sources is an excellent series to supplement a Holocaust collection. The series personalizes the Holocaust by presenting history through the eyes of the people who lived it. It contains quotes from survivors, documents, and photos from the United States Holocaust Museum. There are colorful maps and photographs which make the books visual appealing. The series is a good introduction to the Holocaust and will encourage students of history to delve deeper. Each volume contains a glossary, timeline, list of books and websites for further reading, an index and footnotes. (The Holocaust Through Primary Sources) Reviewer: Ellen Frank
