A sampling of materials from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum includes the excerpted texts from taped oral and video histories and photos of people, artifacts and maps. The specific stories of 20 young people link the artifacts through the effective device of museum-created "identity cards." The youth were born between 1911 and 1934 in Austria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland and Romania; they suffered or died during the Holocaust in Europe between 1933 and 1945. The book is divided into three sections: Nazi Germany, The "Final Solution"; and Rescue, Resistance, and Liberation. A lengthy chronology, suggestions for further reading and glossary place the highly emotional material within its historical context. Dr. Bachrach received her Ph.D. in Modern European History from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. (Age 9 and older)
