Synopsis

Hodder History Investigations: The Holocaust by Neil DeMarco

The Holocaust is an essential and unique Key Stage 3 resource for teaching and learning about the key aspects of the Nazi's persecution of Jews and other groups before and during the Second World War. The book never lets go of the period's story, providing innovative and exciting opportunities to examine how different factors contributed to atrocities on a massive scale. Pupils are encouraged to examine why the list of people hated by the Nazis included Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, black people, Communists, Poles, Russians, Christians. How the Nazis only expected a healthy prisoner in their camps to live for three months and why the old, sick and very young were killed immediately. Readers also investigate how only 1,000 Jews of the Warsaw ghetto formed an army and managed to fight back against the Germans with only ten rifles between them! They are also asked to think about what the Holocaust represents for people today and how it impacts on all of our lives.

Reviews

This excellent book by Neil DeMarco tries to explain to a younger generation in the 21st century how and why did the Holocaust happen, why was there hatred between the Nazis and Jews, what happened to the victims of the Holocaust and why was there so little opposition to this horrific and damning period of 20th century history. By taking a double-spread for individual items of study and adding first-class diagrams and illustrations, I would certainly recommend this book to any History department to add to their textbook collection as a worthwhile purchase. SATH I would certainly recommend this book to any History department to add to their textbook collection as a worthwhile purchase. SATH
