Books About the Holocaust
During World War II, Adolf Hitler and the Nazis attempted to exterminate European Jews by forcing them into concentration camps, where both children and adults were sent to their deaths in gas chambers. Many books have chronicled the courage and suffering of the Holocaust victims, from fictional stories to first-person accounts by survivors to diaries written at the time.
