The Holocaust by Philip Steele

This thought-provoking book uses evocative photographs, maps and easy-to-follow text to tell the story of this dark event to young readers in a clear and sensitive way. It explores the complex reasons for the Holocaust, what life was like in the ghettos and concentration camps, the aftermath and the founding of the state of Israel.
