This Holocaust story, told by its youngest survivors, is filled with miraculous escapes, false identities, remarkable courage, and heartbreaking decisions. For many readers, the most compelling element of We Must Not Forget will be the dozens of archival photos that help bring the story vividly to life. There are happy family photos taken before the war began, photos of children in hiding (some whose stories are told in the book) taken by the families who gave them shelter, and photos of Jewish partisans in Poland. Reader may find stark black-and- white images of Jews being arrested or rounded up for deportation disturbing.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
