Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This ambitious work, produced in association with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, is the book equivalent of a museum tour. Each spread investigates a different aspect of the Holocaust: the rise of the Nazi party, the Wannsee conference, the murder of the mentally ill, persecution of homosexuals and gypsies, and the destruction of the Jews. While unusually comprehensive, the text does not dominate the book. Thoughtfully chosen, uncommon documentary photographs overwhelm the pages with their pathos and horror (a woman, sitting on a park bench marked ``for Jews only,'' hides her face from the camera; grinning children pose shortly before their mass execution in a Lithuanian shtetl; a killing squad trains its rifles on a Soviet Jew perched above a ditch filled with corpses). Individual experience is literally marginalized here, as the experiences of 20 young persons are telegraphed episodically alongside the body of the text. There is much to compel thought, but there is little attempt at synthesis-rather, each entry, textual or illustrative, seems to compete for the reader's attention. Ages 10-up. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Tell Them We Remember is a wonderful book that introduces the Holocaust on the same personal level that the "names project" gives it at the Holocaust Museum. History becomes more real to both children and adults, and the photographs come alive as we read that "when he was nearly fourteen, Sandor Braun was deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau." Then, several pages later, we learn that he survived the war and emigrated to the U.S. where he became a violinist. There is a lot of fiction for young people about the Holocaust, but even the best fiction cannot compare to this.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
More than one million children and teenagers were murdered by the Nazis, including these, whose photographs and stories are interwoven throughout this historical overview off the Holocaust. Ms. Bachrach's stark reporting of the rise of Nazism, the persecution of non-Arayans and the handicapped, the operation of the "killing centers," and the Nuremberg trials provides a look at recent history all children should be taught, grim though it is. Photographs from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum illustrate the volume.
School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-Intended to extend the experience of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum beyond its walls, this book reproduces some of its artifacts, photographs, maps, and taped oral and video histories. Many of them are from archival collections in the museums of Germany, the Netherlands, England, and Poland, as well as those in the United States. The book is divided into three sections: Germany before and during the Nazi regime; the final solution, including the ghettos; and rescue, resistance, and liberation. Bachrach makes the victims of Hitler's cruelty immediate to readers, showing that, like readers, they were individuals with hobbies and desires, friends and family. Two interesting devices are used to generate emotional involvement. The first is an attractive ``cast of characters,'' guileless young people whose pictures, taken from their identity cards, smile innocently out from the page and in other photographs, enjoying life. The second is to insert these same identity cards and photos of life before Hitler into the narrative of destruction so that readers can trace what is happening to the young people at different points in the Holocaust until their death or the war's end. Thus, this is a very personal approach to Holocaust history and a very effective one.-Marcia Posner, Federation of New York and the Jewish Book Council, New York City

    What a Advanced Reading, English, and Math 12 year old thinks

    I'm a 12 year old boy who is advanced reading. In this class we took a test to find out our lexil lvl mine was 1326 (college Junior and higher) after the test the program spit out a personilized list of books for each student and mine said this was one of the books i should read. This book was AMAZING to me because you see i want to become a B.A.U agent when i grow up and studing studing human behvior is part of this and this book really got into human behvior about how differance is the biggiest problem of humans and how we have problems accepting it. This book also gets into how words can rouse a nation and make things sound and look herioc when they are just evil in costume for that is what Hitler did, he talked with fancy words and strict laws to get people to pull the wool over thier own eyes so ya, this book is just amazing everyone has to read it so enjoy.
