An account of what life was like in Europe for both Jews and non-Jews while Adolf Hitler was in power.
School Library JournalGr 6-9-Two additional titles in an introductory series on World War II and the Holocaust. Both have short but clear topic explanations and above-average photos in both color and black and white. Hitler's Europe details the day-to-day struggles of both Jews and Gentiles during this period and includes facts not often found in other books, such as Hitler's enjoyment of both Shakespeare plays and Disney cartoons, and his attempts to twist them for Nazi propaganda. Survivors contains information readily found elsewhere, but does give a good introductory snapshot of individual survivors and their stories. Shuter offers a good cross section of the different ways people found to survive, through escape or perseverance. The book is an optional purchase for libraries owning Eleanor H. Ayer's The Survivors (Lucent, 1997), which is quite similar.-Paula J. LaRue, Van Wert City Schools, OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
