Clive A. Lawton is an educator, broadcaster and writer. A former headteacher, he has been involved in the development of Holocaust studies, and was vice-chairman of the Anne Frank Educational Trust, UK. He is the author of Auschwitz - the story of a Nazi death camp, also published by Franklin Watts.From Booklist:
This slim volume offers middle-graders a concise, graphically illustrated overview of the Holocaust. Beginning with the question "How Could This Happen?" double-page spreads address each escalating stage, including Germany's economic depression and factors that contributed to Hitler's rise, the formation of the Nazi regime, and national anti-Semitism. The text is very brief and factual, letting the multitude of shocking photographs and illustrations show the horror and senselessness. A map showing Europe's Jewish population by country, both before and after the war, offers dramatic perspective, as does a final chapter, "Could It Happen Again?" which briefly mentions post^-World War II genocide in Cambodia, Rwanda, and Serbia. The book closes with the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights," which will intrigue students concerned with world affairs, followed by an appended chronology of events. With so little text, students may not find enough to support report writing on any one subject. Nonetheless, young readers will come away with a better understanding of the relationship between the events and the devastation. Gillian Engberg
