Reviewed with Linda Jacobs Altman's The Jewish Victims of the Holocaust.
Gr. 5-10. Drawing on some of the best adult histories and personal accounts, these titles in the Holocaust in History series do a fine job of introducing the facts and the issues. Altman writes with simple clarity in short sentences that tell the horrifying truth without sensationalism about leaders and ordinary people who were perpetrators, victims, and bystanders. Forgotten Victims will fill a gap even in large Holocaust collections, with statistics and searing eyewitness accounts of what happened to more than five million Poles, Russians, Gypsies, homosexuals, and the disabled. There are shelves of good books covering the material in the Jewish Victims volume, but for readers new to the subject, Altman presents a clear overview of Hitler's genocidal plan and its implementation in the ghettoes, roundups, and camps. The series design is spacious and readable with clear type and well-chosen, black-and-white archival photos. The documentation includes full chapter notes to the adult sources as well as a bibliography of YA titles and Internet addresses. An excellent series for the Holocaust curriculum. Hazel Rochman
