The Holocaust by Susanna Davidson
  

Synopsis

The Holocaust by Susanna Davidson

This is a new title in Young Reading Series Three , which is aimed at children whose reading ability and confidence allows them to tackle longer and more complex stories. The book tells the story of the Holocaust from the ancient roots of anti-Semitism through persecution in Post-World War One Europe and the horrors of the 'Final Solution'. Told in a sensitive and informative narrative, this book combines first hand testimony from Holocaust survivors with historical fact. It is illustrated with documentary photography where appropriate. It is developed in consultation with Alison Kelly, who is a senior lecturer in education and an early reading specialist from Roehampton University.

Reviews

'An excellent book ... It tackles a very difficult subject very well and is aimed at children aged 9 and over, but I also think it's good for parents to read to explain to their (older) children' - Annalisa Barbieri (The Guardian)'

'Written sensitively and movingly... Finely tuned for a young audience' - Coventry Telegraph

'The Holocaust by Susanna Davidson is a sensitively written account... The book contains powerful photographic images and archive documents to help highlight the horrors of the Holocaust. It provides an excellent introduction to the subject whilst handling the topic delicately enough as to not upset children' - Adventures in Homeschooling
